Word Intermediate



This course focuses on creating professional-looking short documents, generated in the most efficient manner possible.

Most people need to produce some form of written documentation at some point in their working day, and the ability to open up Word and to begin typing appears straightforward. However, Microsoft Word is a highly underestimated program. There are many underlying principles to creating documents, which are often overlooked. The frustrations that then arise when Word doesn’t behave as you expect, can generate inefficient working practices and unprofessional looking documents.

Delegates will work with the hugely powerful “Paragraph Mark” to help explain the underlying mechanics of why text appears to move around the document with a “life of its own”. All font and paragraph formatting techniques will be explained. Various pagination techniques will help control which page text appears on, and spelling and formats will be automatically corrected. The mysterious world of “bullets and numbering” will be resolved and basic Headers and Footers inserted. You will not only be able to print the document you have created but also the envelope and/or the label that may accompany it.
