What will the apprentice be doing?
Now it's possible you will have never heard of the job "Data Scientist". Rest assured; this doesn't mean you'll be mixing chemicals in a lab.
It's a puzzling role that brings together maths, statistics, software engineering and communication. One day you could be coding in languages such as: R, Python & Scala, the next working on modelling and developing statistical models (Machine Learning).
You don't need to have any previous tech experience, nor education in data science. A passion for numbers mixed with a curious mind is all you need to succeed.
What training will the apprentice take and what qualification will the apprentice get at the end?

Once you have completed your degree, you will hold a BSc Data Science qualification.
