The Data Literacy Learning Journey

Performance Tracker Learning Resources Knowledge Checks & Workplace Activity Performance Tracker
Start with the 180 Performance Tracker to take a ‘snapshot’ of understanding and ability to apply data literacy. Watch, listen and learn through key topics and modules. Put to practice newly acquired knowledge and apply it in a real-life context with activities and knowledge checks. A final Performance Tracker shows a ‘snapshot’ of where participants have reached, as a result of completing the training.
