Data Analytics Skills Escalator

The Escalator Model is a relatively new development that helps to assess whether a region has sufficient citizens skilled in a particular field/sector critical to economic success and that the skills and training needed to enter or progress in this field/sector are available locally, at all levels.

The Escalator Model looks at what particular skills are really critical for a region.

This video presents the role that the University of Exeter has taken, together with its regional partners, in creating a ‘data analytics skills escalator’ for the Exeter City region. It looks at how and why a university, working with other skills providers and economic development bodies, decided that ‘data analytics’ should be a regional skills priority and at the steps taken to deliver the skills we agreed were needed.
