Further education webinar – 11th February 2016, 15:30-16:15
Microsoft Certification and the Microsoft Imagine Academy
Last week we posted a blog exploring the value of Microsoft Certifications for students, not only when it comes to applying for jobs, but also in terms of how the technical skills they develop can improve the way they go about studying on a day to day basis.
Included in that post was a recording of a webinar from last April, run in conjunction with our partner Risual, exploring the value of certifications from the perspective of an employers, and also looking at West Hertfordshire College as an example of the benefits evident within education when students support their education with qualifications.
If you’d like to attend a live webinar, we will be running a session on Microsoft Certification and the Microsoft Imagine Academy within Further Education, with our partner Prodigy Learning, on February 11th between 1530-1615.
To register, please email Anthony Nneke.
The session will cover a number of areas, including overviews of Microsoft Certifications such as Microsoft Office Specialist, Microsoft Technical Associate and Microsoft Certified Educator, and an introduction to the Microsoft Imagine Academy and apprenticeships programmes.
Throughout the webinar we will explore how all of these certifications and courses can contribute to increased productivity, employability, CPD, return on tech investment and alignment to the curriculum.
Also included in session will be a look at the MOS UK Championship, which forms part of the MOS World Championship, an annual global competition that tests students’ skills on Microsoft Office applications, operated and sponsored in the UK by Prodigy Learning.
