Course description

Data Technician Level 3 Apprenticeship

The ability to make decisions using data is a necessity and key advantage for any business, but it can only help firms if they have the resources to extract meaningful conclusions. Many organisations are unable to capitalise on the data within their business due to a shortage of experts with the relevant core data skills.

BPP, in partnership with Grant Thornton, is excited to offer a new Data Technician Apprenticeship. This partnership brings together BPP’s high quality apprenticeship approach with Grant Thornton’s extensive real world insight and expertise, creating a programme with practical application from the outset.

The Data Technician Apprenticeship will help your business to hire entry-level data specialists or upskill existing employees who are working with data. If you have data within your organisation then you can transform that data into knowledge which will enable you to identify patterns, make better decisions, predict trends and increase business competitiveness.
