The Arch Graduates Data Science & Analytics Fast-Track Programme

It’s not about what you know, it’s not even about who you know.

It’s about knowing Digital Data.

Did you know that in the past 24 months we have created more data than in the entire history of the human race?

Did know that every second that passes 40,000 search queries are typed into Google? Did you know that as it stands right now we are currently analysing and processing 0.5% of all the data that’s created? Did you know that 73% of organisations are investing in Big Data?

Data is like oil, it’s poisonous if it’s not refined.

The skills to refine it are what businesses crave but can’t find.

There has been a seismic shift in the world of business, we now live in a world where the ability to ingest, process, analyse and use the world’s data is the key to being commercially successful. As such Data Science and Analytics skills are the most valuable, most coveted and hardest to come by in the commercial world.

Welcome to Arch Graduates – where giving people like you these skills and the opportunities to use them is what we do.

We believe that truly fast-tracked careers are built from day one and that you have to earn your right to have one. Longevity is as key as anything because true learning doesn’t happen overnight, it happens over years. We give you the chance to learn at the deepest level possible to develop yourself into someone truly valuable.

We exist to bridge the skills gap between what employers want and what graduates have. We’re picky when it comes to finding the right grads to take part but once we know you’re one of them, we give you a truly unique opportunity.

So what does an opportunity with us entail? Well our promise to you is that we’ll give you what we think is the best possible first two years of a career that you can get straight out of Uni.

We’ll give you incredibly in demand digital knowledge and skills – we’ll also give you the badges and certificates to prove you are the expert that you’ll become.

We’ll give you some of the best ‘commercial training’ you can get because the data skills alone simply aren’t enough. We know that the ability to work data in a commercial context is the difference between “good job” and “wow”.

We’ll also give you commercial experience that you can’t find elsewhere, we’ll give you experience working in a digital team or business that will add the sort of value to your CV you simply can’t get anywhere else.

This particular stream of our digital programme is creating the future’s top Data Scientists & Data Analysts. You’ll therefore need to have a passion for something like data, maths, stats, science, engineering, technology, engineering, mechanics or the like. You’ll definitely need a desire to learn, a drive to become the best, an appetite to push yourself and an inescapable curiosity for how to make things faster, more reliable, more useful and more efficient.

You will learn how to use technology (the very latest technology that is) to make the smartest business decisions possible. Because that’s exactly what you’ll be doing. Interrogating data sets, evaluating your findings, making critical commercial judgements, and communicating them in a way the rest of the business can understand.

You’ll need a 2:1 or above from a mathematical, statistical, scientific or equivalent background and a drive to start a career in a rapidly growing area that uses the most innovative tech to expose the real meanings of complex data.

Everything else we’ll teach you.

How does it work?

In its simplest form:

  • We select you
    • For this there could be anything from three to seven stages of assessment.
  • You learn
    • This is our secret ingredient, but it’ll all take place in one of our training rooms, it lasts 10 weeks and will probably be the most important 10 weeks of your career.
    • We pay you during this time.
  • You work
    • We get you working in one of our Partners' data science teams, in almost all cases you’ll work with them for 21 months.
    • We pay you during this time.
  • You learn
    • Throughout your time with one of our Partners you’ll be continuing to develop and you’ll be using some of the coolest tech out there to do so - this is as vital as any element of what we do.
  • You (re)graduate
    • You finish your time with us and receive a Blenheim Chalcot Graduate Diploma in Digital Business with the ADBL.

Two years with us and you’ll have the digital skills, commercial experience and financial value of people that began their career years before you did.

Welcome to Arch Graduates. We’re not just a fast-track graduate programme. We’re the most formative, informative, comprehensive, cutting edge, exciting, promising, useful, relevant and genuine graduate programme available on the market.
