      How does the Applied Data Analytics Apprenticeship benefit your business?

      This programme is aimed at employees in your business who work with large volumes of data. It offers a fantastic opportunity for managers and future leaders who can underpin their decisions using insights.

      Even today, many firms are unable to capitalise on the information within their business due to a shortage of experts with specialist or technical data skills. Employees across an organisation are now exposed to greater volumes of data, but often lack the expertise to analyse and generate insights that inform their decisions.

      Our Master’s degree programme in Applied Data Analytics directly addresses this growing skills gap. Your employees will learn the technical skills that enable them to work with complex data architectures including programming, big data, advanced analytics and cloud technologies, in addition to AI, machine learning and robotic process automation.

      They will also understand how these skills are applied at a more strategic level, transforming data into knowledge and insight that drive decisions and direction. Participants will benefit from the technical data skills that can be applied at a strategic level and be able to present their findings in a way that resonates with senior stakeholders, transforming data into knowledge and insight that will drive decisions and direction enabling real improvement and change.

      What does the Applied Data Analytics Apprenticeship offer to your employees?

      Aligned to the Digital and Technology Solutions Specialist Level 7 Apprenticeship, this programme is for the rising stars and next generation of leaders in your business. It is aimed at individuals who are looking to gain a solid understanding of the data science concepts and techniques that will enable them to work on challenging projects.

      Your employees will be able to leverage the power of both big data and domain knowledge to solve real world problems. They will benefit from ‘best-in-class’ technical skills and gain the ability to manipulate vast amounts of data with sophisticated statistical techniques.

      The ability to present and explain complex findings to a broad audience will also add to your employees’ value, combined with a deeper understanding of more advanced technologies such as machine learning and automation. This can help your employees to address business problems and also present future opportunities.

      What will your employees learn?

      • A Professional Discussion
