Available for online delivery!

Basic Stats in a day! This workshop helps you to choose and use appropriate statistical techniques in your day-to-day work. Learn which charts and graphs to use in order to present your information effectively. Practice (and master) statistical methods such as designs, displays and distributions.  Analyse your data using t-tests and analysis of variance and fit appropriate curves. You’ll get hands-on experience of managing and analysing data, and of quickly generating charts and graphs. Following the workshop, you’ll be better equipped to analyse and interpret your data - and better equipped to effectively communicate your results.
