Geospatial Mapping and Science Specialist Degree Apprenticeship

Geospatial Mapping and Science Specialist Degree Apprenticeship

The Geospatial Mapping and Science Level 6 apprenticeship develops the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in a Geospatial Data Interpretation career. Geospatial Mapping and Science Specialists interpret and analyse geospatial data (data relating to geographic position on the earth’s surface) and use leading edge digital technology such as laser scanning, Geographic Information Systems, remote sensing and imagery. They provide data analysis and advice for mapping, satellite navigation systems (Satnavs), Global Positioning Systems (GPS), infrastructure, the identification of local, suburban or international boundaries, military, mining and a wide range of other purposes.

Specific duties are to interpret, manipulate and analyse geospatial information, data and measurement using a wide range of innovative technologies and to provide strategic advice and recommendations based on this analysis. Geospatial Mapping and Science Specialists can work in either the public or private sector and employers include consultants, contractors, rail operators, government, the military, mapping companies, suppliers of computer based mapping technology, Geographic Information Systems and Building Information Modelling, utilities companies and a range of others.

WHAT’S INCLUDED IN THE APPRENTICESHIP?

20% of the apprenticeship must be done away from the apprentices’ work to count towards their off-the-job training – this can be a mix of face to face and virtual classrooms, projects, distance learning and meetings with their dedicated Learning and Development Coach.
