Home News Minister calls on APS community of data specialists
Text size :
Applications are open for the first round of a Data Fellowships program with CSIRO’s Data61 which will provide intensive training for public sector data specialists.
The program is a new initiative within the Australian Public Service Data Skills and Capability Framework.
Launching the framework recently, Assistant Minister for Cities and Digital Transformation Angus Taylor said there was a need to improve data skills and capability across the APS. Agencies are invited to nominate up to 10 candidates per round to undertake three-month placements to address a data-related challenge.
“This is such an amazing opportunity for the Data Fellows to work alongside some of the country’s best researchers and engineers from Data61, and their partner organisations, to further develop their skills,” Taylor said.
