QA apprenticeship will help the NHS unlock the power of data

QA are running an exclusive apprenticeship programme to help train NHS staff in data analysis, with the aim of powering innovation and improving health outcomes.

NHS Data Essentials Level 3 with Microsoft Excel Certification

This October, QA will be running an exclusive apprenticeship cohort dedicated to NHS staff, enabling learners to study and collaborate with like-minded individuals from NHS Trusts across the country.

The programme will help overcome barriers to digital transformation by developing NHS staff with the hard and soft skills to translate data challenges into digital solutions, reducing costs and improving the outcomes of healthcare delivery.

The NHS Data Essentials Level 3 programme provides Microsoft Excel certification and Power BI knowledge to power data-driven innovation. Alongside online learn and work-based elements, learners apply knowledge directly to real project, utilising Power BI data visualisation platforms.

Benjamin Forkin, Work Based Learning Coordinator and Apprenticeship Lead, Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust, said of the apprenticeships:

'QA has been a longstanding partner to the NHS. The data apprenticeships programmes developed by QA support our need to empower our staff to operate effectively in the digital first environment.'

Embedded within the apprenticeship, learners will also have access to the NHS Edward Jenner leadership programme. This flexible suite of short courses supports personal development, forging impactful careers that reflect NHS values.
