What we do, and how we work, to make sure you get the most from the courses you attend

Microsoft Office has dominated the office suite market for many years now, and rightly so. Office contains a wide range of applications that are each designed to fulfil a specific purpose, from composing and editing documents to creating powerful presentations, managing your accounts, and much more. Microsoft Office can also be deployed to fulfil both domestic and corporate requirements, making the software extremely versatile.

Just like individual applications within the suite, Microsoft Office is used in most organisations all around the world, regardless of the industry. An investment in Microsoft Office training courses will bring improvements in both productivity and quality of work that will repay itself many times over in a short space of time.

Are you using Office to its full potential?

Our Approach

We are great believers in interactivity and promote the importance of it in every course we teach.  When you book with us you’ll be able to choose from one of our nationwide venues – or elect to have the training delivered at your place of work.

The History Of Microsoft Office

Microsoft Office was initially released back in 1990, and the first version contained just three programmes: Word, Excel and PowerPoint.  In the years since, it has grown to incorporate a wider range of applications, including Outlook, Access, Visio and Publisher.
During its lifespan it has also grown to incorporate new features, such as spell checking, Visual Basic Application scripting and OLE data integration. The latest update was released in 2013.

Office 2007

With the release of Office 2007 Microsoft made a globally sweeping change by replacing the familiar – and extremely popular – toolbar that had once been part of Office’s intrinsic chemistry with something called the ribbon. This separated functions in to individual groups, which depended on the use value they performed. The thinking behind this was that it would make it easier for users to locate the information they needed quickly.

Not all the changes made were on the same scale, although many of them were useful. The Live Preview function was just one such example, allowing a user to check formatting changes were suitable before applying them. Office 2007 also worked with XML files. This allowed people to import information from previously unsuitable programs.

Office 2010

Not every release of Office contains a ground breaking new feature.  But thankfully the 2010 version contained an extremely useful addition to its array of options: BackStage.  The purpose of it was to help users manage their documents more effectively, doing this not by adding new functions, but by putting them all in one place. How BackStage worked in Office 2010 depended on the program that was open – hence different features were available depending on whether you used Outlook, Word or Excel.

Office 2013

Technology has changed since the last version of Office was released.  This update caters tfor the tablet and SmartPhone market by building in functions suitable for fingers and thumbs.  This makes it an ideal choice for business or domestic users who access their apps through a tablet or smartphone. As expected, Office 2013 is fully compatible with SkyDrive and its interface is cleaner and crisper too.
