IT training

With everyone’s work becoming more and more computer-based, and with regular updates to the software programs we use every day, it can be easy to feel left behind.

But help is at hand! Our very practical one-day workshops cover all the main Microsoft Office programmes and versions, including Office 365, 2016 and 2013. They are also available at differing skill levels, from courses that cover the essentials to those that will help you develop advanced skills. If your team’s IT skills need brushing up, please give us a call to discuss how we might be able to help you.


Looking for a virtual option? Most of our programmes can also be delivered in webinar formats. To discuss what this might look like for your organisation, give us a call on 01582 463463 to talk through your requirements. (See also the extensive range of ‘off-the-shelf’ webinars offered by our sister company, Maximum Performance, here.)
