Launch of Data Skills Workforce Development Training

As part of The Bayes Centres continued commitment to the development and delivery of data-related training, the new Data Skills Workforce Development Training portfolio is launching in May 2020.

Each stand-alone course within the portfolio aims to develop new skills in the field of digital data for those that complete them. This provision of courses is delivered fully online, with each course being free at the point of entry to those who meet the Scottish Funding Council eligibility criteria, with eligible learners able to choose multiple courses.


The courses currently within the portfolio are:

- Data Carpentry

- Practical Introduction to Data Science (short course)

- Leading Technology & Innovation in Organisations

- Health Data Science

- Data Visualisations for Professionals


The Scottish Funding Council (SFC) invest around £1.8 billion a year into the Scottish Higher Education sector and fully support the development and delivery of this portfolio. The initial 2020 pilot includes a series of non-credit-bearing workshops and four credit-bearing courses (one entry level and three advanced levels).
