Advanced Word Processing Using Word

“Even though I use Microsoft Word every day I have still learned a lot. ” Mrs S

Microsoft Word is a complex software program with hundreds of options and uses, we will teach you how to use Microsoft Word to a more professional standard, perfect as a follow-on course from our Beginner’s Word Processing course or if you already have experience in Word. Follow our step-by-step instructions as we produce a course brochure which will be formatted, indexed, and then merged in preparation for a mailshot to be sent.

Course Contents

·         Lesson 1: Styles and Document Setup

·         Lesson 2: Headers and Footers

·         Lesson 3: Cover and Contents Pages

·         Lesson 4: Collaboration

·         Lesson 5: Mail Merge

·         Lesson 6: Final Task

In the final task, you are going to use skills learned in previous lessons to complete the revision activity which will engrave your knowledge about Word Processing. The task will ask you to use previous files to produce a Word document.

You will be asked to find and add a theme to the document whilst changing the titles to Heading 1,2 and 3.

Furthermore, you are tasked with inserting page breaks, adding the Skills 365 Logo, and adding a Table of Contents and footnote of your choice to at least one item on the page.

A mail merge will be performed using the letter and the spreadsheet. Once this is done you will need to review the document before merging it into a new document.
