Our technical training courses are centred around practical activities where apprentices can learn by doing as part of a small cohort. Each course is broken down into 2x 2-day training sessions. In each session, participants will build knowledge, develop skills, and uncover data insights, led by an expert coach.

Course 1: Working with Data Sources

Within any organisation, data comes from many different sources, systems, and formats. This course explores the role of data within an organisation and teaches participants how to gather data from multiple sources for meaningful analysis.

Course 2: Gaining Insights Through Data Analysis

In this practical course, participants will develop skills across a range of data analysis techniques, including statistical methods, algorithms, and data modelling. We’ll also explore data quality issues, including validation techniques to identify errors and audit results.

Course 3: Decision Making Through Data Stories

The best data professionals are those who can communicate insights from complex data in an accessible way, helping others to take informed action. This course explores how to present and communicate results for different audiences and looks at methods to securely store and share data.


Our curriculum combines expert technical training courses with corresponding workplace projects. After completing the course material, apprentices continue to build their skills and apply what they’ve learned within the workplace, making a meaningful contribution to your team.

A Level 3 Junior Data Analyst Apprentice will complete the following projects:

  • Working with Specified Data Sources
