Springboard Courses @NCIRL #HDSDA #Analytics #31

Once again the National College of Ireland is running Springboard courses starting in January next - we are the largest provider of such courses in Ireland and they have been very successful for our students over the past three years. This is a fantastic initiative to help graduates in non-IT disciplines to get on the IT ladder. While the programme is aimed primarily at non-IT honours graduates, you don't have to have a degree - there are many paths to getting a place on these free courses.

The courses on offer from NCI are:

  • Higher Diploma in Science in Data Analytics
  • Higher Diploma in FinTech
  • Higher Diploma in Computing (with specialisations in Cloud Computing, Software Development, and Mobile Application Development)
  • Certificate in Digital Marketing
  • Postgraduate Diploma in Science in FinTech
  • Postgraduate Diploma in Science in Data Analytics

Most of my teaching is now on these programmes - next semester I will have three modules (Business Data Analysis, Advanced Business Data Analysis, and Data Visualization) on the Higher Diploma in Data Analytics. I am in particular looking forward to the Data Visualization module as it will be a new one for me. I am also Course Director for the Higher Diploma in Data Analytics, which is our most popular course.

I get great enjoyment out of seeing people changing their lives through education. Many students come to us looking for a change of job, or a job in the first place. It is gratifying that I and my colleagues have a small role to play in this life changing experience. Our Higher Diploma in Data Analytics is now well-known amongst employers and we have a fantastic success rate for our graduates finding employment.

Come talk to us if you are interested!
