The Data Masterclass helps senior leaders gain the skills to create and support a data culture in their organisation. It helps government and public sector leaders understand how they can use data to improve the way they make decisions, craft policy, communicate compelling narratives, and apply cutting edge data science techniques. The Data Masterclass has the keen support of Ministers and Senior Civil Service (SCS).
