Skills Bootcamp overview

Data science is a growing sector, with the potential to change the way we live in the future by solving or offering insights into many of the largest problems of today. On this dynamic course, you’ll learn the programming and maths skills to use these technologies to solve the real-world problems relevant to your existing knowledge and expertise.


You’ll learn to create intelligent models which can predict future outcomes based on past data, generate artwork, or give you incredible insight into hard-to-find connections within your datasets. You’ll gain a deep understanding of data flows within organisations and systems, and how huge amounts of data can be engineered to produce knowledge.

How has the Skills Bootcamp been designed/created with employer input?


A workshop is intended in early/mid September to finalise content of the curriculum and agree the most flexible delivery mode possible. Employers will be presented with current thinking (both in terms of content and delivery) and organised into groups for discussions. The outcomes of the workshop will inform the design of the curriculum, involvement of employers in the delivery and progress monitoring as well as the most suitable delivery mode.
