Employers have highlighted the importance of data science and its potential to revolutionise a number of industries, from social sciences, physics and engineering to market analysis and banking, while creating significant employment opportunities for data analysts, machine learning specialists and data specialists.
For the apprenticeship degrees, you can use the Apprenticeship Levy towards course fees if your employees are based in the UK.
– Companies with an annual salary bill of less than £3m will pay 5% of the total course fees, paid in monthly instalments.
– Companies with an annual salary bill of more than £3m will contribute 0.5% over the £3m into the Apprenticeship Levy. You’ll then be able to use funds in your digital account to fund apprenticeships for existing staff or new apprentices. The government provides £1.10 for every £1 you pay in.
