New LEON course – managing data

Connect for success

Part of Connect for Success is sharing knowledge, effort and resources to do the best job possible for and with our communities. This includes how we use data to help inform decision-making in the council.  

We all deal with data every day at work. This can include everything from customer contact information to health and safety regulations to allergy lists for school kitchens and recycling statistics. It’s essential that the information we use is reliable.

A new course on LEON is now available to help you understand the importance of managing data.

Getting started with data’ is a one-hour course that introduces you to data in all its forms and gives you tips on storing, sharing and using data. The course covers:

  • The importance of information
  • Trusting your data
  • What do we mean by good data?
  • How data can end up bad
  • Caring for data
