Data Analyst Apprenticeship
What will I do on this course?
This apprenticeship will cover various aspects of data analytics in the workplace, ranging from data collection and legal issues to the importance of analytics and carrying out routine data analysis tasks.

How will I be assessed?
Along with workplace observation, you will also undergo an independent end assessment. This will test your skills, knowledge and behaviour in this role, and consist of a summative portfolio, synoptic project, employer reference and interview.
