Event description
Data Science Degree Apprenticeship Industry Forum for employers, managers and mentors - help us develop the data scientists of the future!

About this event

Effective collaboration between employers and academics is central to the success of our Data Science Degree Apprenticeship at York St John University. We have involved employers from the start in the creation and design of this programme and it is important to us that you continue to be involved to ensure its continuing success for Data Science apprentices.

Now the programme is in its second year, we are particularly interested in your thoughts on how we can develop our delivery models in a post-COVID era; possible progression routes to higher levels; and how we can work together to effectively integrate work-based and academic learning.

We are inviting employers (those responsible for sourcing and onboarding and the apprentices’ line managers and work-based mentors) to be a part of this process at our Industry Forum on Tuesday 25th May 2021 from 16:30-18:30.

This will be an online event (facilitated via Microsoft Teams) to discuss how we can continue to work together to develop the data scientists of the future. The forum will open with an introduction to the future of the programme and participants will then break out into small discussion groups:

Group 1: for line managers and work-based mentors to discuss best practice in terms of employer support for their apprentices and hear about the exciting ways in which current apprentices have been able to apply learning from the course in the workplace, and vice versa.

Group 2: for those responsible for sourcing providers and contracting to talk with our academic lecturers and business development team about the recruitment and onboarding of apprentices.

The event will conclude with an open forum chaired by the Head of School to gather your feedback and identify future developments and ways of collaborating going forwards. In particular, we want your thoughts on how apprentices can apply their work-based learning in their academic work and vice-versa, how best practice can be shared between and within cohorts, what delivery options should we consider post-COVID and what progression routes are of interest to your organisation.
