RELATIONSHIPS IN DATA
This course is aimed at all who need to examine their data for relationships that may or may not exist, whether the data come from a survey, experiment or elsewhere, and covers the topics of simple and multiple regression.
STARTER COURSE IN STATISTICS
This course is aimed at all who need to learn about the very basics of analysing, presenting statistical data and questionnaire design. No prior knowledge of statistics is assumed. Anyone who needs to deal with data in their work should be able to participate fully.

ESSENTIAL DATA ANALYSIS
This course is aimed at all who have groups in their data that need to be compared and contrasted or who need to examine their data for relationships that may or may not exist, whether the data come from a survey, experiment or elsewhere, and covers topics in hypothesis testing, simple and multiple regression.

INTERMEDIATE/REFRESHER COURSE IN STATISTICS
This is a course aimed at all who wish to improve their competence and confidence in analysing data from surveys and experiments. You are encouraged to bring your own data for discussion/analysis. It is assumed that delegates on this course will have a knowledge of probability, the Normal distribution and hypothesis testing. Those whose experience of these topics is some time in the past should find sufficient reminders given to enable them to participate fully.

HIGHER COURSE IN STATISTICS
This course is aimed at those with a working knowledge of statistics who wish to learn about or improve their competence and confidence in using more advanced methods of analysing data. You are encouraged to bring your own data for discussion/analysis. It is assumed that delegates on this course will have a knowledge of probability, the Normal distribution, hypothesis testing and regression techniques. Those whose experience of these topics is some time in the past should find sufficient reminders given to enable them to participate fully.
INTRODUCTION TO MULTILEVEL MODELLING
This course is aimed at those researchers whose data have a hierarchical structure such as pupils grouped in schools, patients grouped within GP practices, etc. For this sort of data, traditional regression methods are inappropriate because the assumption of independence of cases is violated. This course will introduce participants to the use of multilevel modelling for continuous responses, including the package MLwiN. It is assumed that delegates on this course will have a knowledge of traditional regression techniques.

FURTHER MULTILEVEL MODELLING
This course carries on from the Introduction to Multilevel Modelling course and concentrates on models for more complex outcomes such as binary and ordinal responses. The package MLwiN is again used. It is assumed that delegates on this course have a knowledge equivalent to having attended the Introduction to Multilevel Modelling course.

PRACTICAL BUSINESS FORECASTING: A FIRST COURSE
This course is aimed at all who need to learn about the role played by forecasting in modern business. It teaches the practical use of the most common forecasting methods and subsequent presentation of results to a business audience.

PRACTICAL BUSINESS FORECASTING: A FURTHER COURSE
This course teaches the practical use of the more commonly used extended/advanced forecasting techniques which will enhance the quality of business forecasts in both the public and private sectors.
