Programme Summary

Our Course on MS Word for Business Professionals focuses on practical aspects and an in-depth understanding of Microsoft Word, as a word processing tool which is widely utilised by business professionals in the public and private sector as well as civil society, without being maximised to its full potential.

The course is divided into six separate modules that include several tricks and skills related to creating and managing files, modifying layouts and structure of text, share and collaborate on documents and understanding the mail merge process. Such expertise will allow trainees to optimise time-consuming tasks and improve their proficiency of reports and other business-oriented communication.

Although the training follows a structured course outline, the trainers’ past professional experience, working with both public and private clients will allow them to modify lectures in a way which incorporates queries and scenarios as per the trainee’s current needs and employment.

MS Word for Business Professionals is targeted towards individuals from all walks of life, who are already familiar with the layout and basic features of Microsoft Word and are interested in pursuing further studies in extending their professional knowledge and skills of the tool.

This course significantly contributes to increase the employability of people who want to access the job market as well as enhance the job performance of those already employed, giving them the opportunity to learn how to perform increasingly specialised procedures and to build new useful skills.
