Upskill your employees using the Apprenticeship Levy

Our government funded Artificial Intelligence (AI) Data Specialist (L7) apprenticeship equips learners with an advanced skill set to empower them to to discover and devise new data-driven AI solutions to automate and optimise business processes and to support, augment and enhance human decision-making.

Across 15 months, learners will undertake expert-designed modules remotely, whilst receiving coaching, attending check-ins and submitting assignments to K.A.T.E.® – before preparing for and undertaking their end point assessment and certification exams.

Apprentices will learn how to

  • Create models that learn over time with Machine Learning

  • Use NLP to draw insights from human language

  • Develop algorithms with Neural Networks that can be used to model complex patterns and prediction problems

  • Build models that perform classification tasks directly from images, text, or sound, using Deep learning

What is an Apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships are a long-term training commitment which seek to upskill existing UK-based employees within an organisation, enabling employers to foster a workforce consisting of highly-skilled and highly-engaged talent.

They typically run over 14-24 months and include 20% off-the-job training, enabling a blended approach between theory and practical-learning to be achieved by learners. 

The Apprenticeship Levy

The UK government’s Apprenticeship Levy scheme came into effect in April 2017 as a way to drive investment in strengthening the country’s skills base.

All organisations with staff costs of over £3m have to pay 0.5% of their salary bill into a ring-fenced apprenticeship levy pot. The money is collected monthly via PAYE, but can be clawed back within 24 months and used for training on approved apprenticeship schemes (such as the Data Analyst Apprenticeship (L4)).
