Business Analyst

As a business analyst, you'll investigate business situations, identify and evaluate options for improvement and define the features required by organisations.

It’s a crucial role in making sure organisations “do the thing right”. The main focus of the business analyst role is to model business processes and to facilitate, coordinate and document detailed business requirements regarding the business change agenda. 

You will also determine and present solutions to how information systems can be used to improve operational efficiency and support acceptance testing to ensure that the proposed solution meets the defined requirements. 

In this level 4 apprenticeship, you’ll learn about analysing requirements for business situations and identifying opportunities for improvement, how to use modeling techniques and tools, as well as how to understand the drivers, costs, benefits and impacts of a proposed business change. 

You’ll gain the skills to excel in various roles, including IS Business Analyst, Requirements Analyst/Engineer and Business Process Analyst.
