Learner Testimonials

‘I’ve had an amazing learning experience so far with The Apprentice Academy’s Data Analyst course. It’s given me the opportunity to learn things I’ve been wanting to for a while. The combination of regular taught sessions and online resources strikes a good balance, and I always feel supported whenever I need help. I’m excited to continue the course and dive into topics like machine learning and AI.’ – Daniel Taylor – Marlowe Fire and Security Ltd

‘The Data Analyst Level 4 Apprenticeship is a great course, not only have I already learnt things that I didn’t think I’d be able to learn, but I’ve discovered new programmes that I had no idea existed before this course, that have added a huge amount of value to my work. My confidence has also already grown a huge amount, and I’m not even halfway through the course. The Apprentice Academy are very supportive and really get to know how you learn and what they can do to improve the experience for you, this is my second course with them and again I would highly recommend!’ – Rachel Schofield – Intrum Group

‘Prior to the ‘Data Analyst Level 4’ I had very little knowledge of the various software that was available to me as a Data Analyst outside of Microsoft Power BI. I am now confident in using Python as well as improving my Power BI core skills. The course is interesting, interactive and provides various learning activities to cater for different learning styles and is therefore a must for anyone who is involved in modelling data on a day-to-day basis.’ – Alex Spencer -FCMS (NW) Ltd
