3aaa Apprenticeships and Pearson have been working in close partnership for a number of years and the introduction of the Apprenticeship Levy in April 2017 has led to us joining forces to support Pearson in providing an effective Levy solution that benefits their organisation and their employees.
Pearson, the UK’s largest awarding body, regulated by Ofqual, offer academic and vocational qualifications that are globally recognised and benchmarked, with educational excellence rooted in names such as Edexcel, BTEC, EDI and LCCI. In the UK, Pearson brings together leading names in education to provide a blend of content, curricula, assessment, training and technology to make learning more engaging and effective.
We have worked closely with Pearson to understand their needs and developed a contextualised learning solution, which allows them to benefit from the Apprenticeship Levy effectively. As part of this ongoing partnership, we deliver the Level 4 Data Analyst programme to members of Pearson’s team, giving them the opportunity to further their skillset and develop a strong understanding of how data is analysed and integrated and how each source captures this.
Zeki Bar, an Events Co-ordinator based in Pearson’s London office, enrolled onto the Data Analyst programme 7 months ago, after expressing a keen interest in data and understanding how the programme could help him analyse data from key events and communicate with current and prospective delegates in the most effective way.
Zeki commented “I have been looking into the prospect of enrolling onto an online Data Analyst course for a while, so when my line manager told me about the Data Analyst programme with 3aaa, it was the perfect fit and allowed me to learn specialist techniques that benefit me greatly on a day to day basis.”
Zeki has worked for Pearson for 3 years and along with a number of his colleagues, is delighted to be working towards the qualification and honing his skillset, further evidence that Pearson are investing in developing their workforce.
He added “Although I work within the same role as before, the programme has allowed me to take on additional responsibility and be confident in doing so. From a technical perspective, it has allowed me to take a more scientific approach to data, as well as learning about different types of software and how they work and are implemented. Within my day to day role, it is vital that I can statistically analyse live data on an ongoing basis and the Data Analyst programme allows me to achieve this more effectively. In terms of event co-ordination, the programme has also given me the tools to understand our current and prospective delegates better and also to streamline the way in which we communicate with them.”
Zeki’s Line Manager, Francis Farrell, expressed his delight about the impact that the programme is having. “The benefits I have seen/can foresee are endless. Zeki has taken on more projects and really provided a high level view of all our events. He is more confident in himself, and is beginning to show the wider business what he has to offer.”
Zeki finished by saying “My trainer, Richard Cardy, has been extremely helpful throughout the programme so far and has helped me complete my job role to a better standard. The highlights of the programme so far have been the last 2 workshops, where we have learnt about specific software and how to apply this to my day to day role. I feel that 3aaa have adapted the programme to meet my needs and the needs of my employer”.
