Arch Apprenticeships

Data driven decision making, powered by Tableau

Give your data analysis team the opportunity to grow and drive better business decisions.  

Empower and allow your Business Insight team to grow, unlocking the potential in your new starter or existing team member. An apprentice will learn on the job, whilst also studying for their qualification. This will allow them to learn the ins-and-outs of your business as well as their qualification. At the end, you’ll gain a qualified team member who knows the workings of your business.  

Why employ a Data Analyst Apprentice

As well as taking part in off-the-job training, your Data Analyst Apprentice will be a big help in the day to day running of your business. As an apprentice will learn on the job, they can assist with your team’s workload.  

Generally, apprentices are responsible for collecting, organising and studying data that will enable you as a team to provide essential business insights. Your apprentice will become a data savvy expert!  

They’ll also free up your already qualified data team members, whilst becoming an important member of the team themselves.  

This is great for you and the apprentice. Your apprentice will become qualified and learn skills for their future.  

Data analyst apprentices will gain a deep understanding of data structures, database systems and procedures.  

Through our partnership with Tableau, your apprentice will have access to a 12-month license and learning resources.

How does the apprenticeship work?

An apprenticeship is a combination of a full-time job with training for a current or new employee in your business.

Their working time will be split 80/20: 80% of their working time will be spent with you, carrying out their day-to-day responsibilities, while 20% of their time will be ‘off-the-job’ and spent working towards their apprenticeship qualification.

What counts as off-the-job training and how is the 20% measured?

Off-the-job training can include:

  • Work spent on their apprenticeship qualification
  • Face to face/virtual classroom training
  • Any employer training
  • Mentoring
  • Work spent on their reflective journal
  • Shadowing other teams
  • Attending industry events

Your apprentice, their Learning & Development Coach, and their line manager will have an off-the-job tracker they can use to record and track this.

How is the training delivered?

The apprentice studies towards their qualification online, and is supported by face-to-face visits from their Learning and Development Coach.

We deliver training in blocks to try and limit disruption, so you won’t have someone leaving the office one day a week.

How are apprenticeships funded?

Apprenticeships are now funded by the Apprenticeship Levy. Businesses with an annual payroll of over £3 million pay 0.5% of their annual payroll into a digital account. The funds can then only be used on approved apprenticeship training.

What’s the benefit of hiring apprentices?

Apprentices bring great value to a business. Rather than searching for existing talent that fits your business, they give you the chance to actively shape the next generation so they can bring the skills your business needs.

The numbers back us up: 76% of employers have said that productivity has improved, and 75% reported that apprenticeships improved the quality of their product or service.*
