Understanding the Fundamentals of Data in Place

The first Springboard Academy course is designed around what users told us they need – an improved understanding of basic data principles.

This course gives an introductory overview of key metrics and datasets, and how to interpret them. We do not limit learning to footfall data – the course encompasses freely accessible data on parking lots, weather, sales, and just about anything else that matters.

This is a one-day course, but the learning continues long after. We will set you some relevant tasks and check-in with you after a few weeks to assess your progress. And because the course is accredited by the Institute of Place Management, you’ll earn points for continuing professional development (CPD).

I felt the day was excellent – very engaging and extremely valuable. We’d be delighted to host any further Springboard courses in Salisbury.
