Introduction to Data Science - 6 Week Course

This 6-week introductory course will help you to plan and implement data based projects effectively and consistently. You’ll be introduced to the core techniques and tools used in data science, and get hands-on experience of manipulating and analysing data. No programming or data science experience is necessary, but basic familiarity with Microsoft Excel is necessary

Please note that this course will be going ahead as normal – just remotely.

The Digital Jersey Academy is inviting applicants to its latest Introduction to Data Science Course, which begins in March, and comprises weekly lunchtime classes over 6 weeks.

It is being led by Daniel Rowles, a certified Google Squared trainer and lecturer at Imperial College London, who has 20 years of digital marketing experience.

In that time he’s worked with some of the world’s best known brands, hosts the chart-topping Digital Marketing Podcast, and has written a series of award-winning books about marketing and branding.

The course is available for anybody looking to improve their digital marketing skills. Companies looking to upskill members of their own workforce are also invited to consider nominating somebody to attend.

The once weekly sessions, each 1.5 hours long, are at lunchtime to allow candidates to fit them around their work. They will also get access to a digital marketing platform packed with additional resources.

You can find out more about the course and enrol, before the deadline.
