Data acquisition learning pathway
The Data Acquisition pathway is aimed at non-analysts, those new to using data or for those needing a refresh on good practices of acquiring data. It will provide a solid theory-based foundation for those analysing data, rather than collecting data themselves, to understand how it has been acquired.
- Understand the Code of Practice and how it should be applied.
- Recognise how to apply ethical principles to any research or interaction with data.
- Understand the impact of sampling/’representative-ness’, bias and questionnaire design on producing high quality and subsequent analysis.
This pathway contains five courses.
To help decide if this is the pathway for you, this persona is designed to create a realistic representation of the intended learning audience.
Kamile is an analyst but has been working in a non-technical role for 12 months.
In previous roles Kamile has used data analysis techniques but has limited experience in collecting data herself.
Kamile would like to refresh her analytical skills, particularly around the Code of Practice and data ethics.
Kamile is conscious that her analytical skills are outdated so would like courses that start at a basic level.
This pathway is aimed at non-analysts, those new to using data or for those needing a refresh on good practices of acquiring data.
