The Launch of Fast Track Data/AI Programme 3

November saw us launch the third Fast Track Data/AI Graduate Programme.

Atradius who have been involved with the programme since it’s inception in 2013 kindly hosted the launch event at their Cardiff Bay Headquarters.

Keynote speakers included Ian Praed, Chair of Strategic Advisory Board of Welsh Contact Centre Forum Graduate Programmes and COO at Pepper Money, Anne Middleton, HR Director, Atradius & Founding Consortium Member of the Graduate Programme Wales and Sandra Busby, Managing Director of the Welsh Contact Centre Forum.

We also heard from Nyala Noe, Senior Data Scientist, Empirisys who shared “A Day in the life of a data Scientist in Industry” and Andrew Washbrook, Head of Data at Idwal Marine.

Also in attendance were the University of South Wales, members of the consortium and some graduate alumni who answered questions from the new starters in a Q&A session.

It was a pleasure to welcome 20 enthusiastic and talented graduates to the start of their journey towards a career in Data.
