Data Science and AI have the potential to make national-scale improvements to health and care in the UK. In order to take advantage of these opportunities, organisations need a workforce with the capability to identify and devise data-driven AI solutions that can support, augment and enhance human decision-making in health.

To help organisations build this capability, HDR UK and Cambridge Spark are working in partnership to deliver the AI Apprenticeship Academy for Health. The Academy will provide organisations with a solution to build their AI capability through upskilling their workforce and training new talent. For learners, the Academy is an opportunity to upskill themselves with a government-funded qualification equivalent to a Masters degree.
