Launch your Data Career

Next group starts October 19th to February 12th.

Unemployment numbers are reaching record highs. One of the most important things we can do to help is by providing retraining to those affected.

We are making our digital program available to people impacted by un/underemployment at a special offering of 7495.- EUR/USD.

Learn Essential Data Science Skills

With our digital program, you’ll learn the ropes of Data Science through certified IBM courses and daily sessions by our Dutch Data Professionals.

This way, you’ll be sure to gain the knowledge and support you need to kickstart your data-driven career.

Community Based Learning

During the SkillsUP Lab, you’re not just following courses. You’re contributing to an inclusive community of data-driven people. You’ll stay in touch with the community during and after your program. Not only with your peers, but with previous cohorts as well!

You’ll also be working on projects to broaden and consolidate your knowledge, so you’ll be prepared to work on real data projects right away. Besides these sessions, we offer personal job coaching from the start, on a biweekly basis. Here, you’ll learn how to create or improve your CV, update your LinkedIn and more!
