Are you looking for the latest AI and data science talent to transform your business?
Research suggests that there is a skills shortage in AI and data science, particularly when considering candidates from diverse backgrounds.
Working in partnership with universities and colleges on the courses, we’re offering organisations the opportunity to build a talent pool and support Environmental Social and Governance (ESG) initiatives through sponsoring underrepresented groups to undertake postgraduate study in AI and data science. The campaign is #JoinYourAIFuture
What’s on offer?
The Department for Culture Media and Sport (DCMS) and the Office for Artificial Intelligence (OAI) has announced further funding for up to 2,000 additional postgraduate conversion course scholarships for students studying AI and data science postgraduate conversion courses to be delivered between April 2023 and March 2025.
Organisations are being invited to join the team to create a future pipeline of AI talent by co-funding AI scholarships. The government will provide funding alongside industry funding.
We have appointed Group GTI to become our employer engagement partner. Group GTI will support organisations in understanding the benefits and to develop relationships with the universities and students that they support. This will help ensure industry gains access to top and diverse AI talent.
