Happy New Year!


Now that the festive season is officially winding down, do you find yourself reflecting on the past 12 months… and wondering where they went?

We understand how fast the time flies by. This past year is no exception – we have been incredibly busy helping more people than ever make the switch to a wonderful new career in Data Science, and we continue to expand our efforts at an astonishing rate due to some serious industry demand.


In fact, December has been busier than ever – especially with the introduction of our Job Guarantee and a new entry-level Python course! You can read more of our news, plans and reviews below.


Remember, if you are interested in Data Science and/or Python training and recruitment then get in touch with us ASAP –  because this is what we dohow we get you started, and where our graduates end up.


From all of us at Step Function, we wish you a happy and prosperous 2018.





This month has been a busy and exciting one at Step Function HQ – all with the aim to launch even more data science careers, and make job finding even easier for our students.


A big part of this is making our courses more accessible – so we recently rejigged our Python course to make it cheaper, shorter and even more beginner-friendly.


The course now runs for three weeks, 6.30pm to 8.30pm, Monday to Thursday, and the price has been slashed by 60%! Make sure to apply quick as places are very limited.


Our other big news for December is that our flagship 6 week course now comes with a Job Offer Guarantee. This means graduates are promised to have relevant work (or genuine offers of work) within 4 months of completing our coaching, or we will refund their course fees.


Remember, our industry links ensure that you not only have the opportunity to meet with and impress hiring businesses, but you also get an incredible portfolio of project work to wow them with!


Finally, a massive congratulations to our last cohort of 2017, who this week completed their coaching and are now set to begin their 2018 data science careers! Well done!

“Step Function definitely helped benefit my career growth in the data science field. The course content was great, experienced teacher and I managed to gain a data science internship soon after completion of the course.

I highly recommend this to people looking for a career change in the data science/ analytics field or to anyone who is looking to further develop more technical and professional communication skills in this busy and exciting field..”

The Step Function course was an incredible experience where in a short time I learnt the fundamentals of “machine learning”.

The quality of the teaching and the documentation provided was of paramount importance. I also benefited from the intensive program and the small number of students.”
