Data Literacy - Building organisation-wide data competence

Just as literacy involves the ability to read the written word and comprehend what you have read, data literacy involves the ability to source, interpret, and communicate data in context. These critical skills enable an organization to use data effectively for business actions and outcomes.

We expect information to be a business differentiator. Yet, in practice, only 25% of workers feel they use data effectively in their jobs, and only 21% of workers feel confident in their overall data literacy skills. It doesn't matter how much data your business collects if your staff and decision-makers are not equipped to use it effectively.

A data literate individual has the ability to understand, interpret, and apply data to fulfil knowledge-gathering, decision making, and communication responsibilities of their specific job roles. Every individual takes part in creating a data-literate organization with the ability to communicate, collaborate, and innovate using data.

We need to invest in ourselves and our staff to empower knowledge workers at all levels of the business to ask the right questions of data and machines, to challenge the outputs of machine learning and AI algorithms, and, interpret data and make the correct deductions.

It will make your business more streamlined since those that understand their data won't need to wait for the data science team to interpret the data for them. And, you will reduce your risk of data losses and breaches if your employees, at all levels, understand how and why to handle data responsibly.

eLearningCurve's Data Literacy Certification (DLC) provides a solid foundation to understand the many dimensions of data ranging from data and databases to data management, data analysis, and data science. DLC helps you to gain the right level of knowledge across the entire data literacy body of knowledge and then provides a respected credential affirming your data knowledge and skills.


We offer three levels of data literacy certification – DLC, DLC Expert, and DLC Mentor – to meet the unique need of various business professionals. We can also address the need for data literacy education and certification for the enterprise.

Building enterprise-wide data literacy

“Not only must organizations take steps to educate professionals who are involved in crafting data-driven solutions, products and services, they must also ensure those steps achieve the goal of teaching all relevant employees to speak data as their new second language, as well as developing and nurturing communities in which the language will flourish” - Gartner
