The Art of the Possible

This is a 2-hour taught course aimed at Senior Managers (SEO+) across the ONS and GSS. The session is delivered through case studies and discussion, and explores what data science is, why it’s needed across Government and how it is currently being used.

The session is aimed at staff who would like to find out more about data science, the opportunities it presents and to engage with discussions which aim to encourage implementation within their teams and departments. It is a non-technical introduction to data science.

By the end of the session, participants will:

  • understand what data science is and why it is needed across government;
  • understand how data science is revolutionising the way we source, process and analyse data; and
  • consider how data science may require different tools and ways of working, and explore how managers with data scientists in their teams can best support them to add value.

Participants will also be signposted to the support available.

Cost and pre-requisites: This course is currently free to ONS and GSS staff. There are no prerequisites for this course.
