Introducing Microsoft Office

Bite Size have been the pioneers in delivering a typical one day Microsoft Office Course in bite size chunks of learning for over 12 years. Since 2007, we have continued to grow our customer and learner base by creating new products and services to meet the ever-growing needs of the digital world today.  Our Microsoft trainers are specialists in their field.

But our customers needed more than Microsoft Office learning to support staff in their daily work, so we started to look at growing our content by partnering with like-minded e-learning professionals.

Say hello to Personal Development

Introducing Workplace Learning Solutions – where Microsoft Office meets Personal Development all in one place.​  We know that Microsoft Office is only a part of workplace learning.  Learning just Excel in isolation is not enough. So why not combine Excel with Finance for Non-Finance Managers or Presenting Yourself with PowerPoint?

Our e-learning library is now packed with Microsoft Office and Personal Development lessons and courses, giving your staff just-in-time bite size e-learning delivered from one searchable My Bite Size library.

Partnering with like-minded e-learning creators

We have teamed up with like-minded e-learning creators who can deliver our customers the same Bite Size experiences in Soft Skills and Personal Development. Partners that have the same business philosophy of delivering short, engaging and relevant e-learning for today’s busy workforce.  Staff today find it hard to commit to long training sessions and are demanding more short bursts of learning in bite-sized chunks that they can engage within their own time.

Learning should be interesting and fun

Our Bite Size lessons are quick for you to complete, fun for you to learn, and easy for you to retain. They are cost effective and tailored for your needs. Learning should be interesting and fun, and at Bite Size that is exactly what it is. The Bite Size team are extremely passionate about creating and delivering affordable on-line training in an interesting and fun way – giving you the tools needed, just when you need them.

The Bite Size team consists of specialists across the IT, Training Delivery, Marketing, Web Development and Communications sectors. They are all passionate about learning the Bite Size way and how they can revolutionise learning in the workplace.​​​

Our Bite Size Journey

2007

Bite Size was founded by Sue Brooker, Marie Wallace and Lucy McAlpine, incorporated and commenced trading, launching its Microsoft Office 2003 content. First exhibition at World of Learning.  Things were getting exciting, we took onboard our first two large customers!

2010

Introduced a new range of lessons for Microsoft Office 2007 and started writing content for Microsoft Office 2010. Attendance at Learning Technologies.  Our customer base and lesson content was growing fast.

2011

The following year, Microsoft Office 2010 was added to the Company’s range of services. Attendance at HRD.  More new customers were enjoying the Bite Size experience, and we just kept growing. Client retention made us realise we were doing something good.

2012

Continuing to expand.  Increased the range of services we offered to meet customer demands. Launched our very first White Label product – a 360 page learning zone website with bespoke SCORM content;  creating bespoke e-learning content; re-developing our learning platform and website; establishing a new learning domain – My Bite Size Learning Platform. Continued to work with third party soft skills organisations to increase our product offering. Attendance at Learning Technologies. Hello to lots of new and returning customers!

2013

We introduced our testing service for Microsoft Office 2007/2010 and 2013, Microsoft Office 2013 content launched and the Company also delivered its first Virtual Online Class. Attendance at The Office Show, and HRD.  Onboarded a major UK retailer, and created their own bespoke White Label learning site with Bite Size content (as well as their own).

2014

Our Bite Size range of services continued to grow.  We added a skill gap analysis tool to our learners dashboard so they could create their own course based on what they needed to learn.  Another good idea from one of our customers!

2015

Developments to our existing system enabled Bite size to offer a single ‘sign on’ option for their white label products;  Launched intermediate and advanced levels of our personalised courses.

Office 365 adoption strategies created for two customers migrating to O365; Created our first Digital Learning Zone for a large leisure organisation utilising SharePoint, SSO and Yammer integrations.  It was (and is still) a FANTASTIC SITE – that we are so proud of!

2017

Bite Size launched their online shop to sell courses to individuals who wanted to upskill, and to companies who wanted to purchase a small number of licences without getting into a long contract.

Bite Size continued to partner with Soft Skills organisations to increase their product offering and were delighted to be working with Microlearn, Skill Boosters and People Alchemy.
