Jointly accredited by the WSI and the IFoA, this new standalone credential, launches in the first quarter of this year, and will offer IFoA members a practical introduction to the concepts, tools and techniques of data science within an actuarial context.

The IFoA’s Data Science Certificate is a globally-accessible online programme, which prepares actuaries for work alongside data scientists.

The first intake of IFoA members will begin the programme in April.

Regius Professor Dame Wendy Hall, UK AI Skills Champion and Co-Founder Southampton Data Science Academy, said "we’re delighted to be working with the IFoA to develop this Certificate in Data Science. Converging world-class data science education with highly numerate professions such as Actuaries is an exciting and essential step towards professionalising data science and AI.”
