Management Pathway


ICAEW Data Analytics Certificate Programme

In this insight-driven era, finance professionals have an increasing opportunity to play a pivotal role in harnessing and making sense of data, by providing evidence-based, forward-looking insights and assurance that support decision making.

We’re delighted to collaborate with ICAEW to develop a highly practical and applied Data Analytics Certificate programme, specifically tailored for finance professionals working in decision support, audit and assurance roles.

There are two learning pathways tailored to provide maximum benefit to finance professionals.

Analyst Pathway

  • Highly applicable and practical course for those wanting to develop their skills in data analytics, in order to better support their business and their clients with forward-looking insight (e.g. predictive forecasts) and assurance (e.g. anomaly detection).
  • Tailored case study that places you in the role of a Finance Analyst, giving you the chance to put the practical analytic skills into practice to make an informed investment decision.

Management Pathway

  • Designed for those who are seeking to develop their operational data analytics capabilities.
  • Course designed to enable managers to enhance the value their analytics teams bring to the business and clients by providing evidence-based, forward-looking insights and assurance that support decision making.
  • Case Study places you in a management role in a private equity firm. Here you'll demonstrate your understanding of analytics work performed by your team, and combine it with an investment appraisal to make an informed decision

Both courses are fully online and flexible, allowing you to work through the modules at a self managed pace. They include instructional videos, use cases, practical exercises, and a case study. Upon successful completion of the case study you’ll be awarded the ICAEW Data Analytics Certificate to demonstrate your capabilities in your chosen pathway.


“It's fantastic to be able to partner with Kaplan to develop this Data Analytics Programme with its two learning pathways that are specifically tailored to the finance profession. Our research has shown there is a clear need for a programme that is not only tailored to the changing needs and skill set of the accountant, but importantly combines the learning with the assessment - which we’re able to do with the Certificate.”

Digital Apprenticeships

Starting from January 2021, Kaplan will be offering the Data Technician (Level 3) and Data Analyst (Level 4) apprenticeships within the Data Science pathway. With the digital skills gap ever increasing, whether you are looking to retrain/redeploy and upskill existing staff, or recruit the best new talent into the business, apprenticeships are a great way to ensure your organisation has the specialist skills and capabilities it needs.

The Data Technician programme is a great way to get entry level talent for your data requirements and will equip individuals with the ability to source, format and present data securely for analysis using basic methods. You can also build your talent pool with progression onto the Data Analyst programme to give you the specialist skills you need.

Both programmes reflect the new IT apprenticeship Standards and have been designed by IT learning specialists and industry experts to equip learners with the most up to date skills needed in an ever changing digital world. Apprentices will be fully supported by specialist talent coaches with knowledge in Data Analytics to ensure they get the best possible support throughout their journey.
