Advanced Qualifications and Software

By learning increasingly advance techniques and remaining up to date on the latest and most advanced software, you can progress quickly in the industry.

For example – Google Analytics has their QAIQ Exam (Google Analytics Individual Qualification), which covers an advanced understanding of Google Analytics including Data Collection and Processing, Setting Up Data Collection and Configuration, Advanced Analysis Tools and Techniques, and Advanced Marketing Tools. It’s a fantastic resource if your looking for a starting point to develop your digital analytics repertoire.

Udemy, an online learning and teaching marketplace with over 155000 courses and 35 million students, is also a bountiful resource with a whole host of different courses you can undertake from the comfort of your sofa. They have everything from data programming to marketing analysis.


Embrace the New!

AI and machine learning, XOps, data fabric, NPL, Extended Reality, and DataOps… these are just a few up-and-coming sectors in Data and Analytics that you might want to research and specialise in! By becoming a pro in a newly emerging technology or process, you can beat the crowd and secure a role that’s part of the next big thing.
