Did you know that you are a data person?
You are a data person, and these courses will show you how important your role is!
Data Basics and Data Essentials are asynchronous courses (100% online and self-directed) intended for anyone in Head Start. The Data Basics course lays a foundation for developing data literacy and supports a journey to a stronger understanding of how to use data for program improvement. The Data Essentials course builds on the concepts introduced in Data Basics and expands the understanding of how to apply data concepts in Head Start.
Hundreds of Head Start/Early Head Start teachers, family advocates, health staff, site supervisors, and their managers and directors have completed one or both courses, and left feeling like they learned valuable lessons and skills about data in their programs.
