Data Technician, Apprenticeship

This apprenticeship covers the following roles: the ability to source, format and present data securely in a relevant way for analysis using basic methods; to communicate outcomes appropriate to the audience; analyse structured and unstructured data to support business outcomes; blend data from multiple sources as directed and apply legal and ethical principles when manipulating data.

You will learn about the journey of a data analyst, including the skills, tasks and processes required to illustrate a narrative that is driven by data. This includes how to use a suite of Power BI tools and services to generate reports that help towards crucial business decisions. Through this programme apprentices will gain a more holistic understanding of the broader commercial context and look at more of the people and business skills that go hand in hand with data analysis so that it can be used to its fullest extent. In addition, you will gain a full understanding of the legal and regulatory requirements of working with data such as Data Protection, Data Security and Intellectual Property Rights (IPR).

How will I be assessed?

You will be assessed through workplace observations and practical tests. You will also complete online tests, assignments and produce a portfolio of evidence. This will be part of your end-point assessment.

What could I do after this course?
