Kier has launched a new digital apprenticeship, providing colleagues across the Group with vital data skills. This has launched in partnership with Multiverse, specialists at delivering data skills training.

The 13-month course will cover core technical skills required to transform data into insights and how to build narratives and present findings.

Apprentices will undertake on-the-job learning and benefit from one-to-one coaching with industry experts; they will also be supported by a thriving community with events, social and mentoring. Upon completion of the course, apprentices will gain a Level 3 qualification.

"We continue to see huge growth in the role of data across a lot of areas in our lives. It’s important that we invest in our people and provide them with skills, a deeper knowledge and technical ability that will benefit them for years to come.

Working with Multiverse has allowed us to offer a relevant and much-needed course to our people."

Jeremy Duggan, president at Multiverse, said: “The ability to gather and interpret data is one of the most in-demand skills in the workplace today, and apprenticeships are simply the best way to enable staff to develop those skills.

“Kier’s Data Academy will not only offer employees world-class training with industry experts, but it will enable the company to improve its systems and outcomes with improved use of data.”
