University Degree VS. Vocational Training

Updated: Apr 4, 2019

A few tech giants have recently announced that a university degree is no longer required for many of their tech roles. They have realized that book smarts do not always translate into strong work performance. Instead, these companies value practical knowledge that candidates have gained from vocational training. Therefore, job seekers are recommended to acquire critical job skills from qualified training centres for their desired field. Another bonus is that vocational training courses are often taught by professionals who have been or currently are in the field, and can sometimes provide valuable career development mentor-ship.

At Pascal Insights, we provide practical, hands-on training programs for candidates looking into entering the data science or data analytics industry with any educational background. We equip candidates a combination of technical and soft skills to be successful on the job. Our courses are taught by industry leaders willing to offer career mentor-ship, and help professionals reach higher in their career. Contact us today for a free consultation.
