Our dedicated team connects students, their parents/guardians and educators with leading data industry companies and professionals across the UK. We call these our ‘data champions’.

We are excited to present Digdata, a programme of bite-sized, virtual work-experience challenges, live online career panels and classroom resources. Digdata is designed for all students in secondary and tertiary education, as well as teaching staff and career leaders.

We encourage all students – from age 12+ through to university level – to take part and develop their skills and knowledge. By connecting with our data champions from leading brands and services, young people are given the necessary tools to consider a career in data – the world’s fastest growing industry.

It is free to become a Digdata member, and all our activities and resources are 100% free too! The Digdata programme of events will commence in September 2021.

Why are we doing this?

Our world is changing rapidly, and data is at the centre of this transformation. With this comes huge career opportunities across multiple sectors, from fashion through to finance. So whichever area of industry students have a passion for, their data skills will help open doors to a great job and fulfilling career.

And, as data teams increase their roles and influence, the skills they are looking for in prospective employees go beyond numeracy. The industry needs creative problem solvers, inquisitive thinkers and good communicators – skills that are transferrable from all curriculum subjects and that are relevant to multiple industry sectors.

In line with the government plan to ‘level up’ UK employment opportunities, coupled with the national skills shortage of data professionals, the Data Inspiration Group aim to help students upskill and develop their competency. With the right knowledge and skills, students can prepare for an exciting and future-proof career in the data industry.

We believe that inspiring young minds early is essential. Our events and activities encourage fun and creativity while developing students’ confidence, often with a flair that may not ordinarily be associated with STEM or core curriculum-based subjects.

Our vision and ambition to connect education with the data industry will assist in meeting Gatsby benchmarks, where relevance to curriculum-based learning, career advice, and student/employer and employee engagement are met through live forum interaction. Digdata also works in conjunction with the government’s National Data Strategy.

We want students of all backgrounds and academic abilities to know that a career in data is a choice available to them. The Digdata platform will provide students with visibility of the breadth of exciting, well-paid career opportunities – both nationwide and globally – in a sector that has tripled its demand for professionals in the last five years.
