Data Analyst

Programme Overview

The Data Analyst Programme is a 16-month apprenticeship programme, designed for data users and professionals. This collaboration between Imperial College Business School and Corndel combines academic excellence with practical coaching, providing a unique blend of business school thinking and essential skills in machine learning, AI, and data science. The programme equips you with the techniques, skills, and knowledge to generate meaningful insights from organisational datasets that lead to tangible business impact.

Who is the Programme for?

Our programme is designed for data professionals who are looking to gain technical data skills to enable them to make better use of the data they have access to in their day-to-day roles. Participants will come from a variety of corporate functions and typically work in a role that requires them to manipulate and interrogate diverse datasets, ranging from tools such as Microsoft Excel to business intelligence systems.

Please note that our application process is geared towards organisations rather than individuals. We encourage you to connect with your HR Director or Learning and Development lead to explore the possibilities of using the apprenticeship levy to enrol in one of our programmes as part of a cohort. Through collaboration with key stakeholders, we aim to create a shared learning journey that aligns with your organisation's objectives, fostering growth for both the organisation and individual.
