Data Analyst apprenticeship

All the digital technologies we use at home and work are constantly gathering and storing large amounts of data. Companies can use this data to make evidence-based decisions across their business, in areas including customer service, marketing, sales, product development and business improvement.

As a result, businesses need people who can use analytic tools and methods to collect, analyse and report on business-critical data. Skilled data analysts who understand these tools and methods such as AI, predictive analysis, and Python and R, are in high demand.

One of the best ways to access data analyst training is the Level 4 Data Analyst apprenticeship. The Data Analyst apprenticeship allows people to learn the techniques to gather, inspect, cleanse, transform and model data – all through on-the-job training.
