Qualification: Data Technician Level 3 


The programme will have 3 main areas of focus: 

  • Analysis: The art of asking why. Why are there problems with a process in our technologies? Why do some groups get impacted but not others? Why does the data show differences when compared to what customers are saying? Why is the customer impacted? The problem can only be addressed after the analysis and complete understanding of the requirements.   

  • Design: Once you understand the problem, solutions must be created with the customer at the centre of its design. We must always think about what brings them the most value. Does it make sense to create an app, a pop-up or amend an existing process? Should information messages be placed at the top or the bottom of the application? Are your images consistent with the messaging? Does the design create the wow factor it needs? Have you tested it with some beta users? Both UX and UI design are important to a great solution for our employees.  

  • Configuration: You will learn how to maintain and update our applications. You will learn system specific configuration, technical skills, working in “sprints” and you will input into our product backlogs. You will learn how to handle data securely ensure all the changes that go into our products have been thoroughly reviewed. You will participate in release conversations and then watch and analyse as your piece of work gets used by the customer.
