Frame is launching a new programme of digital skills courses – AI For All – centred around artificial intelligence technology. 

Primarily aimed at educational institutions and private companies, it has been designed to help UK-wide organisations grow and empower their students and workforces through effective learning.

The West-Yorkshire based technology and data science business recently partnered with Leeds Beckett University on a bespoke three-week course which was available to all students regardless of what subject they were studying. It was an investment made by the university to help make tech skills more affordable and accessible, and was part of a wider push to encourage inclusivity within West Yorkshire’s digital and technology sector. 

Post-course research showed that 100% of participants would recommend the programme, and that 86% would consider working in a digital business a direct result of taking the Frame course.

The new eight-strong AI For All course portfolio that has been created so far is made up of: An Introduction to AI; AI Hackathon; AI For Marketing; AI For Business; AI For Media; Humans & AI; The Future of AI; and Careers In Digital.

However, Frame is able to tailor each course and create bespoke content depending on an individual client’s requirements and the sector they operate in. The courses can also be delivered remotely or in-person. Each one is carefully curated by industry leading experts with over 20 years’ of experience working in the data science field.
