Did you know that we are so much more than a data science school?


We don’t just teach you the skills for your new career, we help launch your career too!


This month at Step Function we have been busy placing our graduates into jobs and our students into placements – as we continue to make data science even more accessible to beginners.


So let’s explore what our graduates are up to, hear some feedback from current students, and answer your latest FAQ’s!





August is shaping up to be a busy month at Step Function!


We’ve got several courses underway, and many more on the horizon. If you are new or coming to study with us soon – welcome!


Past, current or future student – remember to join us on Facebook for the latest updates and industry news! We keep one ear firmly on the ground and are always sharing interesting articles and career opportunities.





This month, current students are busy working on data wrangling and data mining placements – and graduates are being placed at top firms!


Step Function graduate Mo recently made the move from Dental Science to Data Science – and we secured him a new career at top consultant engineers, Pell Frischmann. Keen to see where you could end up?


You can read more about his success and check out our graduates here.





We know we offer an incredible learning environment and a truly hands-on approach – but don’t just take our word for it!


Keen to know what our students think? Here’s the August low-down:


“I’m really glad I took the future investment in boosting my career with such a professional organisation. Very interesting course, great professional teacher with lots of experience, professional guidance and support – and learning by doing!


Certainly gives the advantage compared to online courses!”

Deciding to change the course of your career and become a data scientist is a big decision – so we understand you have a lot of questions.


Something we get asked a lot about is official certification. Here’s our stance…



      Q: Is Step Function certified?


      A: We are a member of the UK Register of Learning Providers (UKPRN 10064360).



However, we do not try to be a traditional academic institution.


Instead we focus on educating for the workplace. Your Step Function project work will be presented directly to employers, allowing them to judge you on the quality of your work, rather than just your CV.


If this sounds daunting, then do some research. Latest studies do confirm that employers increasingly value skills over certifications and degrees. So, skills and practical training are exactly what we equip you with- as well as a careers package to make sure they get used!
