Applications open for the Level 6 Data Science Degree Apprenticeship

We are pleased to announce that applications are now open for our Level 6 Data Science Degree Apprenticeship.

This apprenticeship is perfect for anyone who is fascinated by data science and loves using maths to solve problems. It provides an excellent opportunity to work towards a recognised degree with the bonus of being able to ‘earn as you learn.’

Apprentices will be able to complete most of their studies remotely. They will also be able to visit their university campus for lectures and other learning opportunities.

Apprentices will also improve their skills and knowledge through their day-to-day work in government. They could be:

  • conducting data analysis and visualisation of datasets used to produce statistics
  • producing design documents and diagrams for data processing systems – this would include considering the statistical or data processing methods that are needed for the task, and the design of the overall data model
  • maintaining and reviewing documentation for statistical and data processing functions, and data processing pipelines

Once an apprentice has completed their apprenticeship they will have all the relevant knowledge to progress in their chosen career. This is an excellent alternative route for people to join the Government Statistical Service (GSS) profession.
