The NPA in Data Science is one of the first data science school level qualifications in the world and is available at levels 4, 5 and 6 which is equivalent to the traditional National 4, National 5 and Higher level qualifications.

The Data Education for Schools Team are developing a range of classroom resources to support teaching of the NPA. They have supported all the schools offering the qualification so far with information, advice, networking and early access to resources.  Please contact if you would like more information.
