Be it bioscience or business, if you want to use data to help guide a given enterprise, you need to understand statistics and experimental design that helps you engage with that data.
The tools and techniques in this course would be suitable for people who work in (and with) management because of how it can help participants understand and act upon data and statistics. Participants would be taught how to engage with statistics so they can find questions that can then be turned into a plan of action to pursue in the same way you can develop hypotheses and experiments from data
This two-day short course, which is delivered in partnership by the University of Nottingham and The Morley Agricultural Foundation, is aimed at people who commission and conduct field trials and farmers who may host and have a close interest in field trials.
Part-funding has been made available by The Morley Agricultural Foundation, who are offering 10 training bursaries, which will bring the cost of this module down from £700 to £350 per person and this includes overnight accommodation, an evening meal, lunch and refreshments.
Bursaries are available to people actively working in field trials or who have a practical interest in their outcome i.e. agronomists and farmers. Bursaries will be preferentially allocated to individuals working for independent companies or their own business.
To apply for a bursary, you will need to write a couple of sentences as to why you are applying for a bursary and this should be completed in the field provided within the 'Funding and Finance' section of your AFTP course application.
