Get the Most From Microsoft Word

Everybody knows how to use Microsoft Word, but few know how to use it properly, or to most effect. To those who realise that an investment in training will repay their outlay many times over, we'd say that we're here with you in mind.

Just learning about what's available on the Ribbon can yield great benefits in speed and quality of work. But the automation offered by a mail merge is quite staggering. And when you move on to the wow factor of documents with advanced formatting, data tables and charts, you can see that your work will progress to a new level.

So you can continue as you are, making the most of what you know, being both inefficient and ineffective. Or you can learn best practice, short cuts and new functionality.

We have scheduled public (open) classes running at all our UK centres, or can run a private (closed) class for you at your offices, all at excellent prices. And if you lack the time, the budget or the training need for three classes, we can deliver a private 1-day course with content composed of the subjects you want to learn, at no extra charge.

With all this on offer, we firmly believe that you won't find a better solution.

About Microsoft Word

A de facto standard application for creating and editing documents, Microsoft Word helps you to build professional-looking reports, letters and business plans with ease, and its easy-to-use tools make a simple job of both creating and formatting these files. Microsoft Word is undoubtedly the most popular word processing program available today, and is used for both personal and professional documents all around the world.

Learning to use Microsoft Word involves much more than simple document layout, and we have three different levels of Microsoft Word training courses. So whether you are a complete beginner or a more experienced user, we have a course that will suit your needs and your skill levels, and help you increase your knowledge and productivity.

Are you using Word to its full capacity?

Features of the Application

Released as a word processing tool, this highly versatile programme allows users to create and print documents using a range of layouts, font sizes and colours. The software permits other functions too, which significantly enlarge its capabilities to make it a valid tool for business or personal users. Tables can be added at strategic points within a document and populated with data.  By using Word's pre-loaded headings, a user can quickly create a Table Of Contents for reporting purposes and add annotations to a file for colleagues to review.

Our Approach

Sharing ideas and generally engaging with others is an important part of any training course, which is why Activia encourages its delegates to interact.  Our all-inclusive course fees mean you’ll also be able to make your booking without worrying about any further costs.

More about training with Activia

With Activia, you can check your skill level (click here to view our Tools and Resources) which ensures you book on the correct course.   This facility is also invaluable when putting together training programmes or bespoke courses for numbers of delegates.

You can also build your own Microsoft Word course (click here to view our Tools and Resources) to suit your own or your company project requirements, incorporating the modules which cover the subjects you want to learn.
