Data Cymru

Data is fundamental to how we function as humans. We use data every day, many times a day, probably without even knowing it. It’s data that helps us understand what’s going on and what needs to be done.

Therefore, it’s important, that we have the right data and that we can understand and use it effectively.

Our training course offers practical guidance to help build skills and confidence in understanding and using data.

In our course we will talk about the different types of data and how to find it. We will guide you through a series of questions designed to help make sure you understand the data you are working with. This will be followed by some techniques to help turn data into knowledge.
