Dive into Data with ADLIB, Engine Shed and University of Bristol

If you know a school student or University student that’s interested in a career in data then Monday’s workshop, a collaboration between ADLIB, Engine Shed and University of Bristol could be for them.

With opportunities to hear from speakers about pathways and journeys into work, what a career in data entails and how you might access such a career, the workshop is set to offer valuable insights. There will also be a Q&A where students can ask questions to representatives from the industry.

In addition to this, there will be a chance to take part in a hands-on workshop with SETsquared - an organisation working in the field.

Participants will have the opportunity to learn about:

  • What they like most about their jobs and how it goes 'beyond' data

  • Their take on top 3 skills it takes to become a successful professional within their fields
