Equans launches data apprenticeships academy

Equans, in partnership with technology company Multiverse, is offering its UK employees data apprenticeships through the newly launched Equans Digital & Energy Services Data Academy.

Employees taking part in the academy will develop skills including data analytics, AI (Artificial Intelligence) and predictive modelling. Multiverse will deliver the high-quality education and training programme through applied learning.

Two different apprenticeships will be available to Equans employees – Data Literacy and Data Fellowship, with an initial programme focussed on 75 staff. The 13-month Data Literacy programme covers core technical skills required to transform data into business insights. The 15-month Data Fellowship programme delivers best-in-class training in advanced data analysis capabilities, giving apprentices the skills to clean, analyse and model data, and tell data stories to non-specialists.

Equans’ investment into these apprenticeships aims to improve the use of data to drive efficiency in production, and identify opportunities to reduce carbon emissions.

James Graham, Divisional CEO of Digital & Energy Services at Equans UK & Ireland, commented: “The Equans Digital & Energy Services Data Academy is designed to further equip our teams with essential data skills for today’s digital work environment, fostering efficiency and data-driven decision-making.

“Data is a strategic asset for us, and so it is vital that we have the internal resource skilled to extract the value from it. The aim is to have the capability across the business to turn data into insights that can help drive decision making.

“With better ability to use digital tools, we expect team members to see an average time saving of six hours per week: empowering them to do more meaningful work. This training won’t just enhance the participants ability to do their job, but it will drive forward their careers with new skills.”

Euan Blair, CEO at Multiverse said: “When you look at the pace of technological change today, businesses and individuals have to be incredibly intentional about how they invest in and develop their workforces. Equans have recognised this, and by rolling out data training in partnership with Multiverse they’re not only empowering their people with enhanced, in-demand skills: they’re also advancing their ability as a business to adapt and deliver for customers.” 

FM Tech Survey 2024 

Service Works Global (SWG) is conducting research in partnership with FMJ, to find out how you are using technology in your role through a short survey.

Whatever your FM role, your responses will help to provide analysis and insight into the use of technology, as the FM industry rises to meet the challenges of sustainability, new ways of working and data-driven decision making. This will enable FMs to gain insight into future trends to stay ahead of the curve, and be able to benchmark against the industry as a whole.

The anonymised results will be published so that you can see how you compare to others within the sector.

The survey should take just 5-10 minutes of your time, and as a thank you, participants will be entered into a prize draw where one lucky winner will be picked at random to receive an iPad 10th Generation worth £499.
