First Business Analyst Apprentice Achieves Distinction

QA are pleased to announce that our first Business Analyst apprentice to successfully complete their End Point Assessment (EPA) has attained the highest available grade – distinction.

The 18-month apprenticeship which empowers learners to acquire skills in business change, agile project management and investigative techniques was completed by Hobie Williams who works for Royal Mail.

“We are really happy for Hobie and Royal Mail,” said Ben Pike, Managing Director, Apprenticeships, QA. “Business analysis skills are among the most sought after in the UK so Hobie’s result should be really celebrated.”

The programme Hobie completed in August provides the basis for a recognised career in business analysis. To facilitate this, it includes modules in Practical Business Analysis, Requirements Engineering and Commercial Awareness – all delivered via a challenge based learning approach.

“Our Business Analyst apprenticeship is a relatively new programme so to see such an amazing result for Hobie, our first learner to come through EPA, is excellent,” said Vicky Nicholson, Business Analyst Programme Manager, QA. “It’s a very innovative space to be operating in so making sure that we offer a full programme is important for our learners. Hobie has clearly risen to the challenge very well.”

Included in QA’s Level 4 Business Analyst apprenticeship are BCS certificates in Requirements Engineering, Commercial Awareness. Systems Modelling and Business Analysis.
