Data skills in geography

Data Skills in Geography is a two year programme, funded by the Nuffield Foundation. It is an integrated programme of work across higher education and schools to support teachers’ and students’ understanding of data skills, confidence in their use, and knowledge of their value to further study and employment. It will also raise awareness in higher education and schools about changes in curricula and share the good practice and expertise that exists in both communities.
