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 advanced data insights, led by an expert coach.

Course 1: Data Analysis Concepts

This course focuses on the core concepts and principles of data analysis. Participants will build on foundational knowledge through an advanced exploration of the data lifecycle, data architecture, and current data regulations.

Course 2: SQL for Data Analysis

SQL is the standard language for relational database systems and is a cornerstone of professional data analysis. This course has a practical focus and will teach participants to create data structures and apply data modelling techniques with SQL.

Course 3: Data Analysis Using Python

This course will develop knowledge and skills in the use of Python, one of the most widely used languages for data analysis. Learners will explore different types of analysis and how Python can be effectively deployed within data workflows.

Course 4: Data Visualisation

The ability to effectively communicate data insight, patterns and trends is just as important as any analysis task. The course explores tools and techniques for data visualisation and reporting, including Excel and PowerBI.
