Office 2016, 2019 and Microsoft® 365 Training Workshops
A workshop lasts for a half, or a full, day and covers any combination of Access, Excel, PowerPoint, Project and Word to suit those attending.
For the time-being on-site courses are unavailable under the rules applying during the pandemic. So in the meantime you might consider receiving mentoring.
You fill a workshop by booking out slots in multiples of half-an-hour to groups sharing similar interests and to individuals.
Workshops offer advantages over formal training courses:
- Address the need for very specific training that might otherwise form a small part only of a full training course
- Provide training that is always totally relevant for those attending
- Allow flexible scheduling of training at points in the day that fit with your work commitments
- Keep people away from their desks for the minimum of time, thus causing the minimum disruption to the working day
- Yield high return on investment (ROI): low cost per head per skill acquired. In the example workshop described below, that would have worked out at about £25.00 a head.
