SESSION 1: SKILLS FOR SUCCESS
Richard Giddings leads this interactive masterclass around two of the most sought after skills in the digital and tech industry: project management and critical thinking.

SESSION 2-3: DATA MODELLING
Data modelling maps out data structures, showing how different data sources fit together and interact with each other. We’ll take you through the core principles of data modelling, and you’ll learn how to create and refine your own data models.

SESSION 4-6: DATABASE DEVELOPMENT
Databases are systems used to access, organise, store and query your data. Over three sessions, you’ll learn how to create your own databases, set up tables, and start to manipulate your data using SQL.

The ability to present complex data in simple ways is a highly desirable skill. After all, there’s only so much insight you can get from data locked away in a spreadsheet. This session teaches you tools and techniques for representing data, including descriptive statistics, trend analysis, and building reports in Excel.
