Data Academy (2)

The Data Academy

The Data academy is the first Academy to be launched by the Future Talent team. The main objective of the Data Academy is to eliminate data illiteracy as an obstacle in the work we do.

At present the Data Academy is offering opportunities for development across our Support office, Distribution Centre and Vet Group. We are offering four different apprenticeship routes designed to further develop and upskill our people across the group.

Available Opportunities

See below for a brief overview of our apprenticeship opportunities.

  • Level 3 Data Citizen

This apprenticeship will give you a firm understanding of how to prepare, interpret and present data and will empower employees to drive meaningful outcomes in their work. This apprenticeship will allow you to make data-led decisions and maximise new tools and technologies in data and artificial intelligence (AI).

  • Level 4 Data Analyst

Build upon your current data analytics and Python capabilities at scale with our Level 4 Data Analyst Apprenticeship. This apprenticeship will equip you with the technical skill set to extract, manipulate and visualise data, empowering you to answer complex data questions and drive strategic value to the work you do.

  • Level 4 Data Engineer

Cambridge Spark's Level 4 Data Engineer Apprenticeship equips learners with the technical and leadership skills to support business functions in creating and maintaining data analytics pipelines. Using the Level 4 Data Analyst apprenticeship standard, learners will build the skillset needed to increase the usability of data in their organisation.

  • Level 7 Data Science and AI

The breadth of skills required to deliver end-to-end data science and AI projects are complex and constantly evolving. Data science roles are now becoming more specialist, as are the tool kits used, with more demand for advanced machine learning and AI skills. Finding talent with the specific skills they need can take organisations a long time. The Level 7 Data Science and AI Apprenticeship gives apprentices the skills to produce more advanced work, more competitive in their field and stay ahead of changes in data science.
