Sinclair Community College is offering a free, 2-day workshop for high school teachers in the Dayton region to help them better prepare their students for careers in data analytics. The workshop will take place July 12th and 13th from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Sinclair’s Centerville Campus, 5800 Clyo Road in Centerville.
“Sinclair Community College is excited to offer this free training to high school teachers who are passionate about teaching the data skills that students need to succeed as data analysts,” said Paul Hansford, Associate Professor – Sinclair College Computer Science/Information Technology Department. “This is a fantastic opportunity for IT, business, or mathematics teachers to learn about and establish pathways to prepare their students for transition from high school to college.”
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, data analyst-related jobs will see a 22% to 25% growth through the year 2030 with annual salaries ranging between $70,000 to $120,000.
“Every industry uses data and employers need skilled workers to fill in-demand jobs,” added Hansford. “By empowering teachers with additional skills, we can prepare more students for this rewarding field.”
Workshop participants will earn the Data Literacy Foundations Short-Term Certificate and also learn about Sinclair’s degree and certificate offerings including the Associate of Applied Science in Data Analytics, the 1-year Data Analytics Technical Certificate, and the Data Fundamentals Short-Term Technical Certificate.
