We have been tasked to work with the 90 students, profiling them all, coaching them on CV writing and interview skills etc. and then to assist them in finding suitable projects.
We will be placing these students for FREE to companies (we will do this work and there will be NO introduction fee for companies to pay)
Data Lab’s MSc 2016/17 intake is more than doubling to 90 places funded across seven Scottish universities – up from the 40 places funded across three universities previously. This extended commitment underlines the growing need to deliver workplace-ready data skills into Scotland’s business and public sector communities.
The programme will ensure the continued availability of some of the very best workplace-ready and most talented technical and data students to both Scottish businesses and the public sector.
We are proud to have been appointed to this prestigious contract. Scotland has some of the most talented and skilled graduate data practitioners in the world and this project will ensure they are available, first and foremost, to Scottish businesses. This project will allow us to help find the most appropriate and effective placements for these rising stars in environments where their skills can make a real difference.
All students on The Data Lab MSc are offered a paid, credit-bearing industrial placement. The 50 additional places this year will all be offered their placement with organisations based in the Central Belt and South-West of Scotland. This is linked to the funding of the MSc. Course and the aim of encouraging direct employment for students following their placement, creating additional jobs in the area.
