Update Your Student Handbook in Word

Course Description


Course Overview

This course is for staff who need to update an existing student handbook for the current year.

You will need an original copy of your 2018/19 Student Handbook in Word. If you are unsure, you can 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."


Courses for the 2018/19 Student Handbook have now finished.

Dates for the 2019/20 Student Handbook will be available in the Summer of 2020.

What can I expect to cover?

You will learn how to copy your content from other documents into the template consistently, how to use template styles to quickly format your document and how to update the standard text entries provided by the Quality Office using AutoText.
