The Web analytics firm Sparkline will train fresh Singaporean university graduates in data analytics skills as part of the Google-Infocomm Development Authority's (IDA) capacity-building "Squared Data Programme" (SDP).
According to a press statement by the Singapore-based online and mobile data analytics firm, it is the only such firm to take part in the programme.
Launched only very recently, the SDP is part of IDA's company-led training (CLT) programme and intends to give Singaporean graduates an end-to-end training programme and entry point into the media and analytics industry.
Open to Singaporean citizens with a university degree, candidates will receive a S$ 2400 monthly stipend during the 10-month training period.
Google will provide 35 weeks of online job mentoring with support from experts and Singapore-based agencies.
Trainees will be required to serve a one year bond for an information communications related job in Singapore upon completion of the programme.
