Health data science apprenticeships nurture the next generation of leaders in data-driven healthcare and empower individuals to harness the power of data and shape the future of healthcare, improving lives and creating a healthier world for all.

The programme is paid for through the Apprenticeship Levy, so learners don’t have fees like at university. Employers gain from a levy that many already pay to government – money they lose unless they organise apprenticeships.

Outcomes for employers

  • Build your ability to enable and deploy AI across the organisation
