Hi,

I am hoping someone can point me in a direction to start progressing my technical knowledge and work career. Currently I work as a Data Analyst and have been for over a year, using mostly excel to compile data and put together reports. I am extremely keen to know what courses or degree I can do to step up my possibilities. I was thinking maybe starting with SQL. I have registered on a few Data courses on Future Learn to get me started and would really appreciate some recommendations.

i do apologies, if this question has been raised before and answered by someone. If so please point me over to the page.

Perhaps would be useful if you'd mention where would you want to progress with your career.

To some extent I think that depends on the company you are working at. Some data analyst roles I know, they are looking for people who could automate certain processes, and that requires the knowledge of some scripting language(s) as Python. As well as to perform some more rich analysis require to learn Pandas library, which is also written for Python.

So that certainly could be one of progression paths.
