TfWM offers transport data apprenticeships

04 April 2023

Transport for West Midlands (TfWM) is offering apprenticeships in data insight and digital skills at its recently launched Transport Skills Academy.

A TfWM said spokesperson said: “We recognise our unique position at the intersection of technology, data, transport, and public service. The innovative projects that we deliver, the advancements in technologies and the growing importance of evidence-led decisions, all mean that we need people who are skilled in technology, data and how to apply it in transport.

“However, the industry faces massive challenges to attract and retain the skills required for this work. The demand far outstrips supply for skills and according to research by Virgin Media O2 the digital skills shortage costs the UK economy £12.8bn a year with 55% of organisations facing skill shortages. Respondents to a McKinsey survey say that solving the data analytics skills shortage is a priority focus area for organisations.”
