National Progression Awards in Data Science launch in Scottish Schools

With the schools going back after summer holidays, it is good to hear of new National Progression Awards qualifications being created in Data Science. These will be available at SCQF level 4, 5 and 6 (equivalent to National 4, 5 and Higher level).

As it’s very new, only a limited set of schools will have these available this year, but it’s an exciting step in providing wider access to these much needed skills. Scotland is the first country to add a specific data science qualification into the school curriculum.
