Adeje’s first DataCamp: phase 1 complete

The initiative is part of the Department of economic development

6 october 2021
Adeje’s first DataCamp, which saw 10 unemployed Adeje women taking part, has successfully completed its first phase.
The training was theoretical and practical with four modules over 2 weeks each, adapted to suit the profiles of the individual participants. 
According to the councillor responsible “This initiative is part of the overall drive of the Council to move towards a diverse and amplified training offer to increase employability, particularly in vulnerable sectors of our population. New technologies have opened up a gamut of possibilities in this regard and we are working to take full advantage of them.”
Following the end of this first course, Introduction to Python, the students evaluated the knowledge learnt during the course – “everything I have learnt will be so relevant to me” or “I can now recognise and work with data structures”, and “I learnt so much, I can’t pick which lesson was the most relevant”.
The second DataCamp is up and running, working with Data Analysis with Pandas, and from here the council are hoping to move to create openings for students in the emerging professional market place which is looking for newly training and skilled workers all the time, here and globally.
