Why Learn to use Microsoft 365

Microsoft 365 and Windows are used by individuals and businesses across the globe.  Many of the tools you might learn to use to assist with your studies will also provide you with valuable skills that you can go on to use in the workplace.

Microsoft 365 programs can help you to perform many tasks quickly and easily, for example:

  • Producing written documents and reports
  • Preparing electronic slides for a presentation
  • Storing data, performing calculations and producing charts
  • Collating resources and note-taking
  • Collaboration and team work
  • Organisation, innovation and automation of tasks

Not all organisations and workplaces use Microsoft 365, however other companies may subscribe to comparable digital toolkits such as Apple or Google, and the digital skills you learn while using Microsoft tools will be transferrable.
