Excel 2013/2016 Core Level 2: Taught in BSL

This Excel training course is for anyone who has used Excel before to create and alter spreadsheets and perform basic calculations. Learners must have used Excel before and be familiar with using formulae for calculations; for example, a multiplication that involves a fixed figure (such as VAT) and requires an absolute cell reference (e.g. $B$4). It is suitable for users of both Excel 2013 and Excel 2016.

Please note: this course is aimed at delegates who use BSL (British Sign Language) or SSE (Sign Supported English) as their language and is taught by our Deaf trainer in BSL.
