How does the training work?
The training courses are held on our online platform, so you can access them anytime and from anywhere. Each staff member has an individual login, so it knows where each person has got up to, and restarts at the correct point each time. The sessions have notes to download and a video presentation – you can watch it, pause and try out the functions, and then there an assignment to try out the topics covered.
The Microsoft 365 training package, containing the 5 courses costs £150 per school for as many staff as required. You can purchase an individual course for £99 per school.
However, we have MANY other courses available including the Microsoft Office packages (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Publisher etc) School Finance courses, GDPR and a range of Personal Development courses (Time Management, Assertiveness, Training, Mentoring, Dealing with difficult people etc) ALL of these courses can be purchased for £299 per annum.
