Data Analyst Assessor/Skills Coach

Coaching learners to transform their lives and careers. Top-notch, trending tech apprenticeship programmes. Flexibility and a great salary. Sound appealing? Then we’ve got the role for you.

We’re seeking Data Analyst Skills Coaches who love helping others learn and accomplish their goals. Join a hands-on, fulfilling role helping apprentices to grow personally and professionally.

About the role

At QA, we know that real life doesn’t happen in a textbook, so we deliver apprenticeships in a modern, blended format – in the classroom, online and in the workplace – supported by you, their skills coach.

As a skills coach, you stand on the forefront of our learner experience. You‘ll be the primary contact for your learners in tech programmes, supporting them and their employers throughout their apprenticeship to ensure they complete it successfully and on time.

You’ll enrol and guide learners through the programme, check in regularly, make sure they stay on track with their module activities and prepare them for the end-point assessment (EPA). While you won’t be involved in assessing their work, you’ll make sure they’re understanding and applying the new skills, knowledge and behaviours they’ve learned and working towards the EPA requirements.

You’ll also provide personal support and motivation to learners to ensure they get the best out of the programme.


  • Enrol and set up apprentices in the programme, ensuring that it’s suitable for them, their job role, their career goals and their employer
  • Understand the “20% off-the-job learning” requirement for every apprentice and plan how they’ll achieve that time
  • Make regular contact with apprentices and employers, acting as QA’s primary point of contact and as manager of the apprentice’s journey
  • Meet with each apprentice and employer every 6-8 weeks to check on progress
  • Record detailed evidence of progress at each meeting and keep our online database/learning platform up-to-date for each learner
  • Support apprentices as they prepare for and complete their EPA

You are…

  • Experience of working with Visualising data in a variety of tools such as Excel, Tableau and PowerBI.
  • Experience of working in a Data Analysis environment.
  • Experience of at-least one programming language. Languages such as Python and R will be advantageous.
  • Experience of working with data including data reporting.
  • Experience of databases and writing software using SQL, preferably in a corporate environment.
  • Confident in customer-facing roles with strong interpersonal and communication skills
  • Eligible to live and work in the UK and able to travel to different locations
  • Able to plan and deliver against set learning and achievement targets

What we offer

  • Generous base salary (dependent on experience)
  • Private pension
  • 25 days holiday (28 after five years of service)
  • Two days paid charity work for a charity of your choice
  • Three days of paid training from your choice of 1,200+ diverse QA courses
  • Cycle to work scheme
