School of Data is inviting journalists and anyone interested in pushing data literacy forward to apply for its 2017 Fellowship and Data Expert Programmes, which will run from April to December 2017.
With up to 10 open positions, the fellows will be placed with School of Data for nine months. The fellows will build an individual programme that will make use of both the collective experience and knowledge from the School of Data.
The aim with the Fellowship programme is to increase awareness of data literacy and build communities who together, can use data literacy skills to make the change they want to see in the world.
The 2017 Fellowship will continue the thematic approach pioneered by the 2016 class. As a result, we will be prioritising candidates who:
- possess experience in, and enthusiasm for, a specific area of data literacy training
- can demonstrate links with an organisation practising in this defined area and/or links with an established network operating in the field
The School of Data is looking for engaged individuals who already have in-depth knowledge of a given sector and have been reflecting on the data literacy challenges faced in the field. This will help Fellows get off to a running start and achieve the most during their time with School of Data.
