No matter how much data or technology is at your disposal, transformation comes when you have people capable of not just using it, but unlocking and communicating its potential.
This SAS® specialist pathway provides individuals with modern analytical skills and the ability to analyse trends through data visualisation. With sharp analysis at its heart, a Kaplan Data Analyst powered by SAS® apprenticeship is anything but standard.
As well as developing technical skills using a range of core technologies and platforms, we support our learners to weave together the ability to source, analyse, work with data and generate insights that underpin decisions that can build a case for change.
Who's it for?
- Junior or aspiring Data Analysts working in any industry or sector.
- Ideal for new talent in the organisation with an active interest in data or existing staff taking on a more data centric role.

Job roles and career progression
Data Analyst, Departmental Data Analyst (e.g. HR, Marketing etc.), Problem Analyst, Junior Analyst, Marketing Data Analyst - but this list isn’t exhaustive, it’s more about what you do in your job role than the actual title.
An apprentice’s journey doesn’t end when their apprenticeship has finished. This is just their first step to becoming a data professional. The next steps could be to work towards more advanced data analysis qualifications, take up higher education studies at a university, or start a level 6 technology apprenticeship.
To do this apprenticeship you must have at least a grade of 4/C GCSE (or equivalent) in Maths and English. If you don’t have this level of Maths and English, Kaplan offers free resources and support to make sure you have a strong understanding of the subjects by the end of your apprenticeship.
Employers could also ask you to have one of the following:
- A Level 3 Apprenticeship
- 2 A Levels or International Baccalaureate or any other Level 3 qualification such as a BTEC Extended Diploma
- 12 months of work experience in the last 24 months if they do not have any other Level 3 qualifications
