Funded by the UK Government

Through the UK’s Apprenticeship scheme, training for learners with employers that pay the Apprenticeship Levy is 100% covered by the UK government. Employers that don’t pay the levy only pay 5% of the cost (maximum, £750 per apprentice)

Learn whilst you work

As part of the apprenticeship, you’ll spend 20% of your working hours (the equivalent of 1 day a week) to undertake flexible project-based learning.

You’ll be submitting your work online via our proprietary assessment and development platform, K.A.T.E.®, which will provide you with a work-simulated environment that builds and reinforces production-ready coding skills. You’ll be taught by professionally trained Data Analysts and Data Scientists who are working in industry. Throughout the programme you’ll be able to blend theory with experiential learning for maximum retention.
