Birmingham City University introduces the Qlik Academic Program to its Graduate+ Award
The Qlik Academic Program has been working with students and lecturers from Birmingham City University for several years now, to introduce students to Qlik software and to help them to upskill in Data Analytics. We are pleased to announce that we have been able to go one step further, and the Academic Program resources are now part of the University’s Graduate+ Award Framework.
Graduate+ is a programme available to all students at Birmingham City University. It focuses on turning high-calibre students into work ready graduates, allowing them to develop professional and personal attributes. One of the skill areas included here is digital literacy, and as part of this, the Qlik Academic Program resources will allow students to develop data literacy and analytics skills. The resources offered by Qlik include training in Qlik Sense software and associated qualifications, as well as general training in analytical theories and concepts.
We are thrilled to have the opportunity to provide students across the whole University with our great resources. As data is becoming increasingly important across all levels of all organisations, it’s more important than ever that everyone has fundamental analytics skills. Being part of Graduate+ means that students from all disciplines can be exposed to the training materials and qualifications, not just those from traditional STEM subjects.
