Professional Education: Data Science in your domain
A better understanding of data is becoming increasingly crucial and data scientists are more sought after than ever. JADS embeds data science into society. We offer training for professionals in Data Science for Health, Industry, Professional Services, Public & Government and AI for Industry. In addition to training as an entrepreneurial data scientist, you can also count on access to an inspiring network of companies, students, startups, NGOs and academics. Together we keep learning. Growing in a data science ecosystem is an investment that keeps paying off. With a sponsor or at your own expense: discover the possibilities and the financial opportunities of a Professional Education trajectory at JADS.
Save while you learn: always a challenge-based journey
Professional Education JADS is always a challenge-based learning process. What does that mean? Our students work on domain-specific cases that directly benefit sponsors, organizations and employers. These learning processes are always based on a realistic business case or an existing challenge. Immediately after completing a Level 1 or Level 2 trajectory, our participants and alumni start running projects themselves. By investing as a sponsor in training professionals or by starting a program as a self-employed person, you can count on a direct impact and a large financial added value – often even before graduation. A demonstrable ROI and concrete solutions for industry challenges; the investment made by a company or sponsor pays for itself through the efficiencies realized in a data project.
Funded by an employer? Share your knowledge internally
It’s a question we hear regularly: “If I send one employee, why not the others? Wouldn’t it be too expensive then?” Our answer? Data science simply makes your products and processes more intelligent. Increasing the knowledge of one employee within the organization is just the beginning. We train professionals who spread their knowledge within their own network. Professional skills are an important part of our training. Every JADS alumnus has the skills to share and teach new insights, as well as to collaborate, bring the right stakeholders together and get things done
“There is a lot of value in the fact that we ask participants to create an internal learning group; a group of colleagues within an organization. What you learn, you will immediately teach. That way you create a snowball effect with immediate financial benefits.”
Our participants, students and alumni are pioneers – they take entire organizations with them. A project, certainly within the Level 2 process, is worth at least 15 consultancy days. With our training you elevate professionalism in the field of data science for the entire team. The combination of learning and teaching – of theory and practice – ensures that sponsors receive more than they pay for.
JADS training is not a passive affair; the promised impact always pays off. Data-driven, disruptive business models, domain-specific entrepreneurship, practical applications to make business processes more efficient: organizations are becoming more strategic and gain a competitive edge thanks to data science.
Entrepreneur? Take a look at your tax options. No sponsor or are you self-employed? Options are available.
You are eligible for tax deduction from your study costs if you pay income tax in the Netherlands and if the study program is relevant to your (future) work or profession. The study costs of your tax partner are also deductible. Currently (until the end of 2021) you may deduct a maximum of €15,250 per fiscal year. If you attend lectures in several tax years, it is possible to spread the study costs over several tax years in order to make maximum use of the tax deduction. You may deduct the study costs in the year in which you paid them. As a result, a JADS training remains attractive and affordable: whether you are employed or self-employed.
From 1 March 2022, workers and job seekers can apply for a budget of €1,000 per year for training and development. This reimbursement is called STAP budget. STAP stands for Stimulation of the Labor Market Position. With this, the government wants to help people who want to develop themselves in order to improve their position in the labor market. The STAP budget replaces the current tax deduction for study costs from income tax.
Thanks to our unique collaboration between the Province of Noord-Brabant, the Municipality of ‘s-Hertogenbosch, Tilburg University and Eindhoven University of Technology, JADS ensures that we challenge each other, remain curious and share knowledge. You work as a professional and you know that your organization has more to offer. You have a thing for data, you have at least HBO thinking level and an affinity with technology. Sign up for our courses and become part of the ecosystem.
JADS does cool stuff that matters, with data.
