About this event

Microsoft Word for Beginners

This course is for those who are starting out in Word, or who would like to become more confident in the basics. Nothing is assumed or taken for granted in this course - and every single question from attendees is treated with due care and respect.

Attendees will gain the skills to open Word, save documents and enter and edit their text. We look at how to format, including changiing paper sizes, text colours, fonts and layout, before moving on to other Word features such as layout options, inserting pictures and graphs, creating and using tables, and review your own MS Word.

No previous experience of Word is necessary, but attendees should have a basic familiarity with using a keyboard and mouse.
