About ITvitae

ITvitae’s mission is to help IT specialists with high-functioning autism and gifted individuals find paid and sustainable work. The company has three core activities: learning, coaching, and secondment. ITvitae offers participants a variety of IT training programs that last six to nine months. Each module concludes with an internationally recognized exam. Participants can choose from a variety of programs in the fields of software development, security, engineering, data science, and more. They are also taught soft skills and coached in how to work within a company. After certification, graduates are employed by ITvitae or one of their clients, or continue their career path at another company.

The Challenge

In 2018, ITvitae contacted us to help them develop their first data science and data engineering programs. People with high-functioning autism and gifted individuals can experience difficulties in building relationships and developing their career path. Being able to connect with stakeholders and fully understand the types of data problems they are trying to solve is an especially important skill for data scientists who need to also be able to communicate across all levels of an organization. For this reason, we wanted to create for them a curriculum with the right balance between theory and hands-on assignments that could also convey an understanding of the business aspect of the work.

Our Approach

In collaboration with the client, we developed several customized training programs that offer the most valuable skills and knowledge that participants need in order to become certified data scientists and engineers. We created more than 30 classes, covering everything from programming skills and big data to machine learning, data science and cloud. Several of our data specialists are involved as trainers and not only provide participants with the necessary theoretical and hands-on knowledge, but also with tips and tricks on how to overcome complex data challenges and communicate results with stakeholders.

The Results

Since the beginning of this partnership, the programs have grown in both value and the number of successful graduates that are interested in becoming data scientists and engineers. Every year, we teach a class of about 20 students and that number is growing. So far, we’ve helped ITvitae train 51 data science students and 95% of them have successfully found data science jobs. More recently, we developed a Machine Learning Engineer program to meet the evolving demands of the job market. This program combines data engineering and data science knowledge and skills, and participants are able to apply their theoretical knowledge to real-life cases.
