One of the biggest problems when booking staff on a course like Excel spreadsheets is deciding the level. If you have a member of staff that has never used Excel the decision is easy and obvious. An Excel Introduction course is the obvious choice. Excel Introduction or level 1 is good for those that have a very basic knowledge or no knowledge, but as soon as you get to slightly beyond a basic user it starts to get more difficult. Experience has shown me that users become advanced at the part of Excel they use every day and so judge themselves as an advanced user the problem is that they are a beginner user for the parts they don’t use. This can cause real problems when delivery some courses. My advice is to make sure the staff have seen the content of each level and if they can say they know at least 75-80% of the content then it’s worth looking at the next level. I would say that apart from having a basic understanding the learning does not have to be sequential in other words you can learn some features without learning others but there are features that are worth knowing that can make others easier e.g. naming ranges. Courses I deliver are in Milton Keynes and all surrounding counties and towns like Rugby, Northampton, Oxford and Bedford etc…
I find it interesting how well ICT can be embedded into Maths. There is a big focus at the moment on embedding. Embedding ICT, Maths and English into training programmes such as Apprenticeships and NVQs. The embedding goes further as ICT and English should be embedded into maths oh and not forgetting bringing the British values and culture into it somehow. I must admit my first thoughts were ‘oh no here we go again’ but all this embedding is making for a much more enjoyable and fun maths session. It just needs a bit of thought at the planning stage but it is really worth while. ICT is embedding it self naturally into our daily lives so we need to take the barriers down and let it into the adult education classroom. The main trick is not just replace what you normally do with software like Excel, Word and PowerPoint but to use the full power of the internet and availability of technology.
I used to work for a private training provider in Rugby. I worked for 25 years with various job roles in Milton Keynes, Northampton and finally Rugby.That company was my life for all that time but now I run a business called InIT Learning and happy to say that there is life after redundancy. 🙂 InIT Learning deliver one day computer courses in Excel, Word and PowerPoint etc. InIT Learning prices are much more competitive than other SoftwareTraining providers. InIT Learning deliver the courses at your premises and provide all the equipment. If you have staff to develop at very competitive prices then getoncourse for success with InIT Learning. My company work with many large businesses and organisations in Buckinghamshire, Warwickshire, Oxfordshire, Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire.
SoftwareTraining for your staff
Do you class yourself as ‘Old School’?
Have you spent many years avoiding computers or saying things like ‘all you need is a pencil and a diary’. I have personally experienced people like this and find it unbelievable that for some people there is so much resistance to move forward with technology. But is it so unbelievable? I believe there is an interesting paradox in education when it comes to ICT. On one hand schools, colleges, business colleges and training providers are told they should be embedding ICT into the learning yet on the other hand they are being told to teach maths like the ‘times tables’. Why learn the times tables if you have IT that can do it for you. Functional Skills Maths is good in that it tries to relate maths to the real world but in the real world we get computer to do it for us or an app on a tablet or phone. Exams still want to see how you worked the calculation out rather than asking what hardware or software you used to do the calculation for you. Problem solving skills and thinking skills is where we should focus and let the ICT do the bit that for most is a chore or a subject with barriers.
I am keen to speak with large employers in the following areas: Milton Keynes, Rugby, Northampton, Oxford and Bedford (and all surrounding towns and counties) about how my company can increase efficiency and motivation of staff. Most staff are self-taught on computers and software like Microsoft Excel, Word and PowerPoint and all delegates on my courses have enjoyed learning new and quicker ways to produce their work. GetonCourse for Success with computer courses at all levels in a day with InIT Learning. There is always something new to learn. My courses a full of useful tips.
Training and courses are a great way to keep the mind active and to develop new skills and knowledge to help with your job at work or to help you gain promotion or to change jobs or careers. Many employers encourage staff training and development as it’s a great motivator and of course it can make a positive effect on the bottom line. I deliver many courses in towns around Milton Keynes e.g. Rugby, Coventry, Oxford, Northampton, Bedford and many more and I meet many people with jobs from a variety of vocational areas and find it enjoyable and fun to work with people who are genuinely trying to learn new ways to make their job and tasks more efficient not just for themselves but for their customers, suppliers, managers and directors. The one thing common to all courses and all delegates is the support and desire of top level management to support their staff to develop and grow. Technology is the future and needs to be embraced from the top down. I can remember someone once said to me ‘David we will store all our typewriters behind the cupboards as this technology called Word Processing will not last’ years later they had to throw them away. The same person also said all you need is a diary and a pencil. Interestingly my current travels, job contracts and current contacts with staff at all levels proves there are genuine managers out there who are supportive of their staff and keen to develop them and embrace technology. I deliver courses in Excel, Word and PowerPoint and keen to speak with managers and directors who wish to develop their staff.
