When we consider how to utilise data available to us, we must ask – do our staff have the necessary skillset to derive meaningful insights from data and convert this to actions? The answer to this is often no.
Data literacy is a concern for your entire organisation, not only data analysts or operational reporting areas. Data analytics and literacy has proven to impact the success and profitability of organisations, and our Data Literacy Program is your pathway to becoming a data-driven business.
Altis offers a range of courses in data, analytics and information to support your business. All our courses can be delivered onsite or remotely.
Our training pathways each begin with foundational courses (dark grey – 100 level code), before participants are given a choice between two conceptual courses (medium grey – 200 level code) that are aimed at further expanding on the foundational knowledge learnt and heading towards gaining certification. From here participants can specialise in specific skills in targeted courses (light grey – 300 or 400 level code) where participants will be hands-on, requiring a laptop or specific software.
Foundational courses are an entry point specifically designed to provide baseline understanding across an area. The 100-level course code indicates a participant will be engaging with discipline knowledge and skills at a foundational level, with all participants speaking the same language prior to progressing through the pathway.
Conceptual courses are the next step in the course pathway where a participant can decide on a certification path. A 200-level course code indicates that the course will expand on the introductory knowledge and skills a participant has previously learnt in a 100-level course. A participant may need to have studied a prerequisite 100 level course to study a 200-level course.
Targeted courses allow participants to specialise their skills in a particular area(s). A 300 or 400 level course indicates participants will be developing coherence and breadth/depth of knowledge and skills in a particular area of learning. A participant may need to have studied a prerequisite course to study a 300 or 400 level course.
