Word 2013 - Update Your Student Handbook

Course Description

 

Course Overview

 

This course is for staff who need to update an existing student handbook for the current year and have not done so before.

You will need a copy of the 2016/17 Student Handbook in Word. You should send this to the tutor to ascertain if it was produced using the correct template.

If you want to create a new Student Handbook you should contact Quality to check if you need to use the template and then book a Guided IT Learning Session.

“It looks professional and is really easy to use. I'm so pleased that this has been done as it's given an official format to a document which is created by most departments."

What can I expect to cover?
