17th July 2018, London: Today the Future Skills Programme broadened its offering to now include creation of Data Analytics talent.

The Future Skills programme uses the UK Government's Apprenticeship Levy Scheme to train and develop brand new, high potential talent from outside of the technology sector. Building skills through an intensive boot camp and a 15-month course, the programme delivers project-ready, experienced and commercially astute talent in an ever-challenging market.

Companies are increasingly becoming data driven, but the cultural shift is facing a talent shortage. Research from the Harvey Nash / KPMG 2018 CIO Survey shows that for the fourth year running, Big Data and Analytics expertise remain the number skill in shortest supply with almost half (46%) of respondents placing it first on their list.

We are therefore excited to announce our partnership with training provider Digital Native to provide courses in SAP, Hadoop, Microsoft BI and Qlik. Digital Native are Birmingham based experts in apprenticeship training with specialist offerings in Data Analytics. They will be supporting Future Skills clients nationally and are a trusted brand within technology training.

Victoria Payne, Director of Future Skills at Harvey Nash comments, "The programme helps promote diversity and inclusion in our clients' organisations. By focusing on hiring talent from outside the technology sector we are able to attract a more diverse pool of candidates".

Tony Harper, Director of Digital Native, states, "Digital Native's model is based on industry experience, creating a practical and hands-on programme that is based on a deep understanding of what it takes to develop leading Data Analysts".

An initiative that aims to expand the talent pool by bringing-in high potential talent from outside the sector, and building their skills through a unique training and development programme; the programme promises to have project ready Data Analytics professionals in as little as 12 weeks.

The service offers a sustainable source of new talent to UK businesses.
