Who Should Attend

  • Those working in an industry or role dealing with data, who would benefit from data wrangling, data validation or data science modelling with the use of programming methods

  • Participants in roles which require hands-on preparation of data with programming

  • Ideal for participants who are in or looking to acquire skills for roles such as entry-level Data Engineers/Data Analysts

The SkillsFuture Career Transition Programme (SCTP) supports mid-career individuals in acquiring industry-relevant skills to improve employability and pivot to new sectors or job roles. It is a train-and-place programme that is available on a part-time or full-time format, ranging from three to 12 months.
