Excel for Intermediate Users: Pivot Tables and Charts Bitesize Live Online Learning Courses

These Excel bitesize online sessions focus on creating Pivot Tables and Charts, and preparing your data to be able to create these. Each session is 90 minutes long so you can fit it around your other commitments.

Each session is interactive and engaging, with guidance from your trainer, activities and discussion with other learners.

These sessions are only available for private bookings, either for groups or as a one-to-one, held online via Zoom. (90-minute sessions are currently not available for classroom bookings.) Please get in touch for availability and pricing.

Overview of the Sessions

Data Tidying

If you work with data that you want to analyse or create Pivot Tables in but it needs tidying in order to give you the information you need, this is the session for you.

Requirements: You will need to be confident setting up a spreadsheet and performing basic calculations. If you are not confident with this please see our Level 1 session on basic formulas.

What you will learn:

  • Using automatic and text functions to tidy your data
  • Flash Fill (including teaching flash fill patterns)
  • TRIM, LEFT, RIGHT, MID, FIND – using these functions on their own and as nested functions to separate out parts of a text string

Pivot Tables and Charts

This session will help you take large sets of data and quickly analyse them using the Pivot Table and Chart tools. We'll show you how to pick the right headings to ask meaningful questions of your data and how to edit a Pivot Table so it shows exactly the information you need.

Requirements: You will need to be confident setting up data in a spreadsheet, saving and locating the file.

What you will learn:

  • How to create a Pivot Table
  • Edit the calculation type
  • Rearrange your Pivot Table
  • Grouping and Filtering
  • Pivot Charts

You can also mix and match with our other Live Online Learning courses: Introduction to ExcelExcel for Intermediate Users, Word for Intermediate Users, and Outlook for Intermediate Users. We have also developed a range of Live Online Learning for our Leadership and Personal Development programmes that you may be interested in.

The Small Print

The course will run remotely for 90 minutes. 

All learners will need to install Zoom on their machines. Full technical requirements are on the Zoom website. Your link will be included in your joining instructions once you have booked your place — if you haven't received this email then please contact our team.

Learners should log into the training session 10 minutes before the start time to ensure that they have downloaded and set up Zoom correctly. The course will start precisely on time and it may not be possible to go back over material missed by late arrivals.

Your active participation is expected: everyone will be heard and seen throughout, just as they would be if we were in a room together. To be heard, hear and seen you will need a microphone, speakers and camera – if you have a modern laptop that’s all you will need. Remember, you’ll need a quiet place to call from and a decent internet connection is a must.

Please ensure you read our Terms and Conditions before booking for our payment terms and cancellation policy.
