Data Apprenticeships

Presentation of a case study where the company used the data apprenticeships pathway to deliver a business critical project.


Data is here to stay and is playing a crucial role for companies with serious growth targets. Many companies are facing the challenge of having too much data and not enough skillset within the company to manage it. Along with this we are seeing a shortage of data professionals in the recruitment market to fill these skills gaps. This is where building talent within your business can help.

Hear from Firebrand's Head of Curriculum for Data programmes, Sean Rafter, present a journey through Level 3 to Level 7 of the Data Apprenticeships. Using a unique case study, he will demonstrate the skills delivered by each Level of Data Apprenticeship, to a wider project. This will not only give attendees a great understanding of the programmes, but also the tangible benefits to an organisation in terms of the capability of their apprentices.

This will include:

Level 3 Data Technician

Level 4 Data Analyst

Level 6 Data Scientist

Level 7 Artificial Intelligence


Sean graduated from University with a Chemistry Degree in 2002 and went to work for Chep as a junior account manager looking after key accounts such as Coca Cola Enterprises, in 2005 Sean joined Greater Manchester Police as an intelligence analyst working on Low Level and Serious and Organised crime in south Manchester. In 2009 Sean was promoted to Senior Analyst and led the Forces Strategic Threat Assessment. In 2010 Sean moved Forces to British Transport Police (BTP) as a Performance & Analysis Manager, in 2016 Sean became BTP's 1st Civilian Intelligence Manager and performed that role until leaving to join Firebrand in 2019.

Since joining Firebrand, Sean has performed the role of a Subject Matter Expert in Data and has recently moved into a Head of Curriculum role covering both Data and Business Analysis. Whilst Sean's career has varied over the years the one constant has been the use of data to facilitate more informed decision making.
