Botswana Accountancy College (BAC) has launched a data literacy short course aimed at forging a greater path towards digital literacy on data and its related pathways.

Speaking at the launch of the course recently in Gaborone, BAC Deputy Executive Director – Academic Affairs Dr Tebogo Magang said that in a world where data has emerged as the new currency for business success, the ability to extract actionable insights from vast amounts of information is a skill that is in high demand.

“Today marks the official launch of our Data Analytics Certification and its related pathways—an initiative that underscores our commitment to excellence in education and our proactive approach to addressing the growing demand for data analytics professionals” he said. The Data Analytics Certification Pathways have been meticulously designed to equip individuals with the knowledge, tools, and practical experience needed to thrive in this data-driven era. For P3 500 the course provides understanding on Microsoft Excel which is a widely used tool for data analysis, and this short course on data literacy will focus on implementing key concepts, tools, and techniques in Excel.

“Whether you're working in finance, marketing, healthcare, or any other field, Excel can give you a competitive edge and help you stay ahead of the curve. This course provides an overview of Excel's capabilities for data analysis, including data cleaning, manipulation, visualization, and basic statistical analysis” Magang revealed. In today's rapidly evolving digital landscape, the significance of ICT skills cannot be overstated. As technology continues to redefine the way we work, communicate, and interact with the world around us, proficiency in ICT has emerged as a fundamental requirement for success in every industry. Whether it's harnessing the power of data analytics, leveraging artificial intelligence, or embracing emerging technologies, the ability to adapt and thrive in this digital era hinges upon a strong foundation in ICT skills.
