Travis Perkins introduces data apprenticeships
Travis Perkins has launched two new data apprenticeships as it looks to improve data literacy and understanding across the group.
To include a data fellowship and an advanced data fellowship, the apprenticeships will cover areas such as using data for effective decision making and best practice learning.
In addition to providing technical training for Python and SQL programming, the schemes will offer insight into how to understand data quality and manage projects, as well as data ethics, visual analytics, predictive modelling and data security.
The first cohort of 40 team members from across the group has already enrolled on the programme, and there are plans to launch two further courses in the new year. These will focus on data literacy for leaders and ensure that data skills are accessible to all.
Phil Tenney, chief information and technical officers at Travis Perkins, said: “By upskilling colleagues, we aim to improve data literacy and analytical skills enabling our colleagues to unlock insight from our data so that they can make better informed decisions.
“Rob Barbour, our data and insights director, has done a fantastic job working with the team from Multiverse to shape a set of new data apprenticeships. These are a fantastic addition to our comprehensive suite of 40+ apprenticeship programmes, and from a talent management perspective, we will use this scheme to grow and develop our own pipeline of colleagues who have data skills fit for the future.”
