What is a data apprenticeship?
Data apprenticeships equip apprentices with the ability and the tools to understand and utilise data to provide intelligent solutions for businesses.
For apprentices, the programme is designed to build upon the skills that each candidate already embodies and provide tactile skills on how to gather, analyse and cleanse data as well as presenting and using it in the most effective way.
Throughout the course of the programme, there is a balance between hands-on work in a professional environment and time to focus on studying the coursework.
How does a data apprenticeship work?
With all apprenticeships, time is split between working and studying. This is an 80/20 split with 80% of the time spent on the job and 20% spent completing the apprenticeship qualification.The training involves both face to face and digital learning.
