This DataLab funded project will work with Effini to deliver a set of training materials around the learning outcomes of two national qualifications, the National Progression Award (NPA) in Data Science and the Professional Development Award (PDA) in Data Science. They will be designed to support online, in person, and self-directed learning that is short-term, flexible and modularised.
The training materials will focus on developing key data skills required for data literacy, working with data, data visualisation, data analysis, data manipulation, and statistics. The content will introduce learners to, or equip learners with, theoretical and practical skills for the application/understanding of data skills and will include interactive and practical activities.
25 one hour long lessons will be delivered comprising tutor notes, presentation materials for delivery of the content, Python notebooks or Excel spreadsheet for interactive activities and tasks, example answers and explanations, and supporting datasets where required.
