About The Data School

Get to know The Data School

New to data or never heard of Tableau and Alteryx? Not a problem! The Data School is training the next generation of data analysts and Tableau and Alteryx specialists.

Our paid training programme starts with four months in one of our offices where you’ll learn the best data analytics technologies from our industry-leading coaches.

What happens during training?

Whilst in training, you'll be working with the rest of your cohort on client projects, helping you to develop soft skills, including people management and presenting, whilst making friendships along the way. You will also learn broader skills about storing, managing and presenting data, as well as personal skills to help boost your confidence in becoming an exceptional consultant.

Once your training is complete, you'll put your skills into practice with 3-4 placements across two years, with clients from many different sectors. Our Data Schoolers have enjoyed placements at some of the UK's leading businesses, including PwC, JLL, LNER and Inmarsat.

Is The Data School right for you?

Everyone is welcome at The Data School. We encourage a broad and diverse group of people to apply, regardless of experience or qualifications.

Whilst some of our team have backgrounds in data or maths, we don't ask for entry requirements related to your experience, education, or existing technical skills, and we welcome both career starters and career changers.

The qualities we look for in our applicants are those who are extremely curious, keen to learn, happy to work with others, and open to feedback.
