Data Technician Apprenticeship Standard

Data technicians have a vital role within an organisation sourcing, formatting and presenting data for analysis using a different set of skills than those associated with the data analyst apprenticeship standard.

The ability to communicate outcomes appropriate to the audience; analyse structured and unstructured data to support business outcomes; blend data from multiple sources as directed and apply legal and ethical principles when manipulating data is a skill set required within most large organisations.

In their daily work, an employee in this occupation interacts with a wide range of stakeholders including colleagues, managers, customers and internal and external suppliers.

Our specialist tutors have designed an engaging delivery model that recognises these specialist skills and are confident that apprentices will gain significant new skills.
