Participants in this programme will be able to:

  • Learn the digital basics, and a digital growth mindset
  • Understand the data process flow, and why it’s important
  • They’ll get their heads around ERPs, and the relationship between data and quality
  • Directly apply what they learn to your company’s specific programmes, software and data requirements


Format of delivery is flexible depending on your organisation’s needs – 6 x 2-day block courses at spaced intervals, ongoing weekly delivery or a one-week intensive programme. Training delivery is on-site at your organisation and we are able to deliver this programme nationwide.

We’re looking for a client to partner with us on our pilot for this new course.
