The Curriculum

The programme is underpinned by learners becoming fluent in Python.

This provides the basis for a broad range of analytical techniques, working in a notebook environment (such as Jupyter Notebooks), and curating and orchestrating different data tools, libraries and models to solve problems.

Our full syllabus features 15 modules. These range from unsupervised machine learning techniques such as k-means clustering, through to more predictive techniques such as regression and classification, through to more specialist techniques such as time series and text analysis.

We work with our clients to select six of these modules and create a 26-week pathway, curated for maximum relevance and impact.
