The training you will be getting

Data Technician Level 3 Apprenticeship. 

If you need to unlock and better communicate the data and technology you have at your disposal, this apprenticeship will help you become more data literate to understand insights, create transformation, and give you the competitive edge. With sharp analysis at its heart, a Kaplan Data Literacy apprenticeship is anything but standard.  

As well as developing technical skills using a range of core technologies and platforms, we support our learners to weave together the ability to source, analyse, work with data, and generate insights that underpin business decisions.  

Our Data Literacy apprenticeship programme integrates five modules of technical training with work-based projects. This ensures that learning and skills are directly applied to the apprentice’s role, and maximises the time used as part of off-the-job training.  

Training schedule has yet to be agreed. Details will be made available at a later date. 

What to expect at the end of your apprenticeship

ISS are going through a automation journey and the requirement for competent team members who can manage data and provide clear analysis is key to our success.

The successful applicant would be given full access to the Data team throughout the apprenticeship, to allow mentorship and development.

There would be a full time role available to any successful candidate that completes the apprenticeship with Kaplan/ISS.
