Pioneering new Apprenticeship in intelligence analysis proves popular

A new Intelligence Analysis Apprenticeship run by specialist Apprenticeships provider Inteltrain is proving popular with organisations seeking to transform the way they handle information.

Taking in everything from fraud prevention to the use of information before making strategic decisions, the Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship in Intelligence Analysis enables learners to study a qualification tailored to their job rather than providing a generic background in the subject. Before the programme was launched, personnel were only able to take Business Administration or IT Apprenticeships. However, the Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship in Intelligence Analysis means they can achieve a qualification which is much more relevant to their job.

Nick Atkinson, Commercial Manager, said: “This course is attracting plenty of interest from organisations that realise they need to improve the way they handle information. “This is an exciting new opportunity for employees working in intelligence and data analysis roles to gain a qualification relevant to their skillset. The qualification offers parity with analysts working at the highest levels of military intelligence operations.”

Those taking the Apprenticeship are involved in roles which involve gathering and collating data from a wide range of sources – both human and electronic – in order to provide analysis to those involved in high-level strategic and tactical decision-making.  Approved by the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority, the Apprenticeship is suitable for anyone working in finance, counter fraud, risk assessment, cyber threat and trend analysis roles, such as Compliance Managers, Data Analysts, Data Managers, Fraud Analysts, Fraud Teams,  Intelligence Analysts, Loss Adjustors, Officers and Managers

It is relevant to those working in public and private sector areas including

  • Banking and financial services organisations
  • Council Counter Fraud and Tax Collection departments
  • Energy and utility companies, such as the water, power, waste management and process, chemicals and pharmaceuticals sectors
  • HM Forces – Air Force, Army, Marines and Navy
  • HM Revenue & Customs
  • Insurance and debt recovery companies
  • Intelligence Agencies
  • IT organisations dealing with cyber threats
  • Police Forces
  • Serious Fraud Office
  • UK Visa and Immigration Services

Nick said: “Personnel who take this Apprenticeship will have a rewarding and technical career, providing vital support to public and private sector organisations. “It is the only Apprenticeship available for personnel working in an intelligence analysis role and is the most comprehensive vocational intelligence qualification on offer in the UK.”
