Alternative job roles you could be working in include: Data Manager, Data Scientist, Data Modeller, Data Architect, and Data Engineer.
This two-year programme consists of the following qualifications:
Core modules:
Data Analyst Concepts (knowledge module) and EMC: Data Science associate

You will also produce or prepare for:
– Summative portfolio
– Synoptic project
– Employer reference
– Structured interview
Entry requirements
– Functional Skills Level 2 English and maths (if not previously achieved or exempt)

The key focus of the apprenticeship programme is workplace/ ‘on the job’ training, carried out in conjunction with your nominated supervisor/mentor at your organisation. Therefore, whilst attending college one day per week for two academic years, you will work for four days per week in an IT environment in the industry to support your college training.
Academic/ ‘Off the job’ training, knowledge delivery and assessment will be carried out at South Devon College within the Computing section.
The summative portfolio NVQ units will be assessed in your organisation, by a NVQ assessor, who will visit you in your workplace to observe some practical assessments and liaise with your supervisor or mentor to discuss your progress and set targets.

I was first made aware of South Devon College through my employers at Scott Richards Solicitors. Since enrolling I’ve always felt supported by the tutors at the College. Our regular chats really help to ease any concerns I may have and put me back on track to progressing. There’s a flexible approach to the learning experience here, allowing me to balance a busy schedule.Naomi Corp
