Data Skills

I’m pleased to let you know that we’re about to commence the development of three new National Units relating to data science. The units, which will be called “Data Skills”, will be available at SCQF Levels 3, 4 and 5.

These new National Units will focus on foundation data skills, covering essential knowledge and skills in statistics, data analysis and data visualisation. We hope that they will be useful to every learner. The units will be different from the National Progression Award in Data Science, which is a more specialist qualification.

We’ll be working on the units over the Summer. They will be available to centres from 1 September. Please contact Megan for more information. These new National Units will join NPA Data Science, PDA Data Science and HND Data Science in a family of qualifications relating to this discipline.
