IFS Specialist Apprenticeship Level 8

Two year blended learning programme - IFS Specialist Level 8 Apprenticeship:

What the programme does:
This programme seeks to provide the appropriate education and training to allow successful graduates be registered with SOLAS as an IFS Specialist. What this means is that through a combination of off-the-job and on-the-job learning, apprentices will develop skills in the areas of data mining, data management and data analysis within the context of International Financial Services. This programme aims to reach beyond the realms of traditional programmes at this level through engagement with a cohesive suite of interconnected on-the-job and off-the-job modules. By doing this, the programme will provide an alternative talent pipeline for mid level analytical roles in the International Financial Services sector for candidates that may not have historically accessed such roles.

Who is this programme for:
Career changers / Career movers - mature students, those returning to work, those looking to reskill and/or upskill.

Timelines:
  • The intake of IFS Apprentices takes place on an annual basis in September each year.
  • The next academic intake will for September 2020.
