Fast-track your career

Jobseekers with certifications from this programme are always in high demand and generally attract higher salaries.

In our ever-changing world, organisations need to remain competitive, adapt to change and remain relevant to thrive and grow. Qualified business analysts play a big role in this and that is why the demand for qualified BAs is currently so high. A simple search on any of the popular UK job boards will demonstrate this.

A Business Analyst in a nutshell

A business analyst or BA is a problem solver who investigates an issue or area of weakness within an organisation that can be positively improved with a successful business change programme that the BA supports and is involved in.

The certifications gained from the exams included in this training package will make sure that you have a strong footing from which to springboard your career.

The certifications are UK and internationally recognised and the training courses in this programme are accredited in the UK and globally by The Chartered Institute for IT (BCS) . We are an accredited training organisation for BCS.

Why are Business Analysts in demand?

There is a shortage of qualified BA jobseekers driven by the need for change programmes not only in the UK, but globally. The world has undergone significant change in the last few years which has driven the demand for staff with BA qualifications to help identify problem areas in organisations and then identify solutions to make improvements and drive positive change.

Who is this placement programme for?

The natural personality of a Business Analyst likes asking questions to assess facts, thinks logically, enjoys analysing, problem solving and exploring solutions. No previous experience is necessary. If you are naturally organised, have strong administration skills, can follow processes and are a strong communicator, then you are ideally suited. No previous experience is necessary.

These are some of our most frequently asked questions. Please fill out the form below for one of our Career Advisors to call you to answer any further questions you have and to help you get your new career journey started.

Are your courses accredited?

We are a CMI, APMG, PeopleCert and BCS authorised training centre and the diploma course offered in the package is fully accredited by BCS (The Chartered Institute for IT).

Can I use these qualifications outside of the UK?

This BCS accredited diploma course is UK and internationally recognised.

What finance options do you offer?

We offer finance through our third-party finance partners, Omni Finance and Premium Credit where you can spread the cost of your study package and exams over affordable monthly payments. This is the preferred option for our students not paying in full.

As an alternative where students do not qualify for Omni Finance or Premium Credit, we offer monthly spread payments in-house (ITOL Finance) which are interest-free and cover the cost of the course component only. ITOL Finance, therefore, does not finance the cost of exams and manuals. You can however at any time contact the exam booking team and pay for exams and manuals as you need them.

Are exams included in the price?

As stated above, if you have paid in full or been accepted through Omni Finance or Premium Credit, then all exams are included including the cost of the oral exam.

Why must I complete my exams before getting a job?

Hiring managers consider qualified job-seekers to be a lower recruitment risk who can hit the ground running and be more productive quickly. You must put yourself in the shoes of a busy recruiting manager to understand why this is always the case.

What recruitment support do you offer?

Once you have completed your exams and the project management assessments, you are then supported by our recruitment team. They will provide you with a professional CV review & LinkedIn profile, job seeking advice, interview advice and support you each step of the job seeking process.

Our aim is to empower you, so you have all the skills needed to secure interviews, master interviews and land the job you want to get.

How long do I have to successfully pass my exams?

You must pass all 4 exams and your oral exam within 12 months to qualify for the job/money-back guarantee. The total study hours for the courses varies from person to person but the recommended hours are approximately 120 hours in total. If the job/money-back guarantee is not important to you then you can take up to two years to complete all the exams in this package.

How will I benefit from completing this programme?

A rewarding career enables you to grow and develop. You will harvest what you invest in yourself. After this programme you will have learned new skills and validated this by passing 5 certification exams including the oral exam.

How long on average before I can find a new job opportunity?

This depends on how long it will take you to pass your exams. It also depends on your location and the number of opportunities close to you. We aim to ensure you secure a new job opportunity within 12 months of completing your last exam, however on average most students secure a role within 4 months of passing their last exam. Please note, our recruitment support only kicks in once you have passed all your exams as this is when your CV will stand out with your new certifications and skills.

How does your job guarantee work?

In the event that you have passed all 5 certification exams including the oral exam at first attempt within twelve months of registering with us and do not secure a job placement within one year after passing your last exam, we will refund your study fees less the cost of your exams subject to you conducting yourself in a professional manner, accepting reasonable job offers and working proactively with our recruitment team. It is also subject to you being a UK resident for at least 5 years, having a good command of English, paying your study package in full or if you are paying via spread payments, it is subject to you not missing any monthly payments. Our Terms and Conditions / Terms of Learning also apply.

Can I opt out of recruitment services and your job/ money-back guarantee?

Yes, you can opt out of recruitment services and the job/ money-back guarantee. If you do not need these services, the cost of your package will be reduced, however this can only be done prior to registering for this study package.
