Decoded delivers upskilling programmes in data aligned to Data Technician Level 3 and Data Analyst Level 4 apprenticeship standards in England. Organisations can fund these programmes using the apprenticeship levy.
We currently deliver two data academies aligned to the apprenticeship standards, Data Champion (Level 3) and Data Analyst (Level 4).
We have designed our Level 4 curriculum to be delivered over 15 months and the Level 3 over 13.
Our apprenticeship programmes retain all the features that make our Data Academies impactful, such as tech integration, live data, real-world application and mentorship. They have the added benefit of being externally assessed and accredited.
In order to qualify for Apprenticeship Levy funding, candidates must meet the government’s apprenticeship funding eligibility criteria which includes factors such as residency requirements. As part of our admissions process, we will assess each individual candidate’s application against the criteria to determine eligibility. We will also assess their suitability for the programme to ensure they are set up for success.
