This is an ONS only event.
This course is aimed at staff who have little or no experience of Python programming. It will allow you time away from your desk to study, with a facilitator available to answer questions along the way. You can access the course materials online for free from the DataCamp website to decide if this is the course for you.
This course consists of four facilitated sessions (1hr each), which will guide you through the Introduction to Python course on DataCamp. Each session builds on the knowledge gained in prior sessions so it is important that you commit to all four sessions.
Sessions are at 10am - 11am on the following Tuesdays,
10/1, 17/1, 24/1, 7/2
