EDC’s Oceans of Data Institute is working with participating colleges of the Coast Community College District to strengthen their efforts to develop a regional career pathway for data science specialists. ODI will focus on two goals:
1) conduct a landscaping study of regional data skills/ worker needs and
2) facilitate the integration of ODI’s profile of a Data Practitioner into the design of a regional data worker pathway.
ODI will identify current and projected regional needs for data skills and data jobs across a wide swath of industry sectors and provide a report that summarizes our findings and provides recommendations for the Coast Community College District faculty and the industry sectors.
