Data Skills workforce development - Upskill in the field of digital data
From Andy Todd
Hosted by the Bayes Centre, the Data Skills Workforce Development portfolio is a collection of short courses aimed at training the Scottish workforce looking to upskill, or those seeking a return to work in a new area. The aim is to make this online learning accessible to the broadest range of people, including those distanced from learning and/or the labour market. The portfolio includes a series of non-credit-bearing workshops and courses and credit-bearing courses which can be used towards follow-on degrees where credits are relevant and accepted. Places on these courses are fully funded to those who meet specific eligibility criteria. Further information can be found at our website https://www.ed.ac.uk/bayes/about-us/education/workforce-development
This session will advertise a snapshot of some of our courses to staff as well as encourage those who might be interested in offering a course to the portfolio. A member of the programme team will give a short 5-minute introduction to the portfolio followed by 10-minute presentations from some of our Course Leads, who will give a high-level overview of their courses and the benefits of being involved with the portfolio. We will end with a short Q&A.
