Together we're closing the data divide
SQA Approved Centre
The DataKirk is both delighted and proud to announce that we have successfully achieved our new status as an official SQA Approved Centre.
Achieving SQA Approved Centre status is another huge step forward for the DataKirk, enabling us to offer learning opportunities that are specific to data science, accredited to SQA and give our data enthusiasts the chance to work towards a qualification.
As big data and analytics continues to transform our society, many individuals from both low-social economic and migratory backgrounds are being left behind. Data literacy for these individuals is a hidden and profound social justice issue. We are working to change the face of Scotland’s future talent pool by
reaching underrepresented communities in data world.
Diversity & Inclusion
Diversity and inclusion is one of the biggest challenges facing the data economy today. When businesses consist of people from the same backgrounds, they often leave diverse ideas and perspectives behind. We are dedicated to helping close the diversity gap in the digital sector. We partner with employers looking to increase diversity in your company.
We need you!
