In 2020, we announced that we were building for the future with the creation of three new apprenticeship standards in the digital space: Data Technician Level 3, Data Analyst Level 4 and Business Analyst Level 4. It is now due to launch.
Built from the ground up by our Apprenticeship Development director Jason Moss and his team, this initial set of programmes have been designed as the first stage of our digital roadmap. They were created as a direct response to the critical skills and behaviours that our clients identified they needed most.
They are applicable to a range of industries across the public and private sector, including: retail, distribution, defence, banking, logistics, education, health, media, manufacturing, hospitality and local government.
Each of the standards lasts between 12 and 18 months, and have funding options for non-levy paying companies up to 95%. With top-class learning pathways and study options available, as standard, your learners will be guided through their apprenticeship by our experienced Kaplan Talent Coaches.
We are now accepting learners onto all three programmes with cohorts expected to begin their studies in late February 2021.
A Digital Roadmap
We are planning a larger foray into this area in the near future, with a digital roadmap planned for throughout 2021 and into 2022. This includes further apprenticeships around Cloud Infrastructure, Cybersecurity and Software Development, as well as several short courses.
These new apprenticeship standards are the first steps, for Kaplan, into a wider digital sphere that we know our clients will find valuable. We’ve already had a great response to what we've proposed for these standards and our other short digital courses, and look forward to having apprentices start their digital learning journeys with us in 2021.

Support for learners
As with all of our apprenticeship standards, these digital apprentices will receive the best-in-class training services on the market. We have an award-winning Talent Coach network, and map out relevant Skills and Behaviours that are required for each standard - which are linked to a range of online learning activities and work-based projects.
We also have a proven track record of delivering successful and quality-driven apprentice programmes at Kaplan.
Did you know?
In 2020, we delivered a record number of Level 7 apprentices through to completion of their programmes, and we currently have learners in over one third of the Top 100 Apprenticeship employers of 2020-2021.
