Time to brush up on your IT skills?

We have a new Office 365 and Basic IT – Free Online Training course which is available to anyone, whether you are temporarily unemployed, working from home, or have been already unemployed.

The course features a selection of short video lessons on topics such as Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Teams and other collaborative online tools, as well as tuition in Microsoft Office applications such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Access.

Typically, the lessons are less than 30 minutes. All the lessons are unaccredited.  Each video lesson is followed by an informal quiz to check for understanding of the material.
