“I can’t get Excel working!”
“I’ve broken this formula, help!”
“How do I get it to change colour when I add this data in?”
“What’s the difference between bar charts and line charts?”
“What’s a pivot table?”
The cold dread as great swathes of data disappear, the mad rush to find the one person in the building who has the mysterious, arcane knowledge to actually fix what has gone wrong, the bewilderment of even knowing what question to ask or what to say to describe the problem; it’s a situation most office workers have experienced.
And it’s not surprising; Excel is a Swiss Army Knife of a programme, standing in for databases, CRMs, finance systems, reporting software, calendars and scheduling tools and so on.
Many people would like to learn more about Excel to get better at their jobs but most don’t know where to begin and need help to start thinking in the right way about the Tech in their offices.
The good news is that Businesses can access Government funded Skills Bootcamps, as short, sharp, targeted Excel Skills Development programmes for their employees. Lasting 8 weeks, learners have weekly coaching sessions with an industry-expert data specialist, learning to source, collect, format, combine, structure and analyse data in their businesses as well as using brand new tech like AI platforms to further enhance performance in their roles.
The Skills Bootcamps are responsive to employer needs and coaching sessions will identify further study from a vast content library that learners can apply in their own organisations.
Skills Bootcamps are available for self-employed people too and as well as data, learners can study pathways in Digital Marketing, Tech, Networking & Cyber and Software Development.
