Supported by DigiTay through the Tay Cities Region Deal , Data Skills for Work at The Data Lab is offering eligible training and education providers funding to deliver data skills training for learners in our target groups as part of an integrated and inclusive pipeline of development.

The maximum grant is £10,000 per course for a minimum of 20 learners, the minimum is £5,000 for a minimum of 10 learners (training must be free at the point of access to those learners). The grant will be administered by The Data Lab (TDL) through The University of Edinburgh.
