About This Course

The IS Business Analyst apprenticeship was produced in collaboration with employers to create a course that would not only teach lots of great new skills to the learner but would also have a useful and long-lasting impact on their business.

IS (Information Systems) Business Analysis is an advisory role that provides a critical layer of challenge and scrutiny for organizations who wish to deliver BA change successfully. IS Business Analysis enables organizations to “do the thing right.”

The role embodies early and regular investigation and analysis that ensures the right IS solution is chosen to meet the required business need.

Given the risk of solutions failing to meet organizational needs, it is crucial that IS Business Analysis is undertaken before projects are initiated.

Pre-project analysis ensures that there is a thorough and shared understanding of the root cause’ of any problem or opportunity being addressed and that various options are considered and the most effective is chosen.

Therefore, IS Business Analysis is a multi-faceted role and practitioners have the ability to investigate business situations, identify and evaluate options for improvement and define the features required by organizations.

The main focus of the IS Business Analyst role is to model business processes and to facilitate, coordinate and document detailed business requirements regarding the business change agenda.

IS Business Analysts will determine and present solutions of how information systems can be used to improve operational efficiency, and support acceptance testing to ensure that the proposed solution meets the defined requirements.

IS Business Analysis provides a recognized career with professionals taking lead roles in successful change delivery in many organizations.

The skills learned in this apprenticeship are also valuable to any company that self hosts all its in-house documentation and handles large quantities of sensitive customer data and high-value documents on their own cloud storage.

The challenge most small and local businesses face is that hiring a professional full-time is too expensive but hiring a company to do it may become even more costly. So, what can you do? Well, by having one of your employees enrolling an apprenticeship backed by the government or by hiring an apprentice into your ranks you are getting the best of both worlds. You get to grow a professional from the inside, guide them by your company`s standards, and we will train them on the skills that will help your business grow to the next level.

While saving the time you would waste learning everything by yourself, you also save money, as one apprentice isn`t nearly as expensive as a professional.

Individual employers will set the selection criteria including relevant qualifications and experience. The apprentice is likely to be required to demonstrate an aptitude for functional maths and competence in written and spoken English.
