Course Requirements

Students should be confident in creating and saving documents in Office, as well as using Outlook (or similar email programme).

What You Will Learn

This course will highlight the new features in the Office suite (2013 or 2016). This course is designed for anyone who would like an overview of Office 365’s new features or who is familiar with Microsoft Office but is moving over to Office 365.

You can look at what the Cloud means for the way that you work – in Office 365, you can access the Portal and all of the 365 tools (particularly OneDrive) from multiple devices for more flexible working.

Skype for Business can help you collaborate and communicate, and, used wisely, it can reduce email overload. OneNote is useful for taking notes on the fly and can be shared within your team.

Timetable

You can pick and choose from the sessions listed below, if you feel that some sessions are less relevant to your organisation needs – typically four sessions would fit into a day’s learning.

The course is flexible depending on your level of experience and your needs. Your trainer will work with you to confirm your objectives, decide on priorities and they will train as much of the content as you need and as is comfortable in the day. Four sessions will typically take a full day of training to complete.

A full day of training runs from 10am to 4:45pm, and can be held here at Happy in Aldgate (with a hot buffet lunch served from 13:00 – 13:45) or at your workplace – whichever is most convenient for you.
