Constantly evolving to meet today’s learning challenges

changing times be bold v2

This is a difficult time for just about every business in every sector.   Customers who we have worked with for many years are facing unprecedented challenges.  Challenges we are helping them to address as we work together in creating a productive, skilled, remote workforce.

We wanted to share with you some of our current training projects to help identify new training solutions for your business. Not only to improve the skills of your workforce but to engage them with virtual and online learning as they continue to work and grow remotely.

Virtual Workshops

We created a series of Virtual Workshops for MS SharePoint and Teams for a Financial Services organisation who were moving towards a different way of collaborative working across their European Offices. We listened to their L&D brief, gained an understanding from the IT Team on how they wanted staff to work with SharePoint, and created a series of bespoke workshops to help their staff feel more confident with this new way of working. This was supported with access to an online library of 5 minute lessons, courses, tests and games to not only to embed the learning, but to give staff a support tool to refresh their skills whenever they needed. We had lots of fun in the process and received some great feedback.

Sharepoint“The Bite Size team were impactful, supportive and brilliant to work alongside. They supported our deployment on MS SharePoint and Teams across our European offices. As the Covid19 pandemic crisis came, Bite Size pivoted quickly and effectively to training virtually. Our staff were reluctant at first but with the expertise of the Bite Size team, we have adapted with ease and are using SharePoint and Teams with success throughout our business. The learning platform provides staff with an opportunity to learn at their own pace and on relevant topics. We look forward to working with Bite Size in the future” HR Manager – Financial Services Sector

We also produced 5 minute lessons and an interactive Quick Reference Card to support them after the training, all accessible within a dedicated Teams Channel using MS Stream. We continue to develop the learning based on feedback and are currently planning Phase Two of the project.

“Bite Size’s greatest strengths are their responsiveness, flexibility and desire to do a thorough job. We’ve been hugely impressed with the most recent project undertaken with them to deliver MS Teams training. Their project management and innovative approach has led to full courses and glowing feedback. We have relied on Bite Size to provide a high level of knowledge about MS products, including the newer and “evergreen” products such as MS Teams. I have been impressed with their ability to keep a broad and current knowledge which they do through partnership working and drawing on each other’s expertise.”   Workforce Development Manager – Local Government

Online Learning Library

dashboardWe worked with a large European Logistics Services organisation bringing teams together by staging live demonstrations and walk-throughs to motivate a remote workforce giving pointers on how to learn online, how to access the learning they needed using the Bite Size lessons and course library. Two workshops were staged, with over 40 attendees, one focussed on staff needs, and the other for Managers and clean recordings were made of the sessions.  Feedback has been very encouraging. Staff are currently accessing the Bite Size E-learning library giving additional remote support.

“You couldn’t ask for a more dedicated team, determined to make sure you and your employees have the best experience they can possible provide.  The quality of MS office training and the price makes it accessible for any SME”  L&D Manager – Transportation Sector

Office 365As Microsoft Partners, we continue to keep abreast of change and have just released a new updated Teams Course and Microsoft 365 course in line with the current changes.  Our Learning Platform is as busy as ever as more and more people look to upskill themselves and support them whilst working remotely.

ExcelWe have conducted many trials over the last few months and plan to on board new customers over the coming weeks.  They see the value in up skilling their staff during this time.  It’s a great benefit for staff that also adds value to the business, now and for the future.

WordOur recently launched League Tables for our Millionaire Games enable staff to compete with each other in real-time, to see who can reach a million in the quickest possible time.  The aim is to bring people together and adds a bit of fun into learning Microsoft Office.  Games currently available in MS Teams, MS Excel, MS Word, MS PowerPoint and MS Outlook.

PowerpointWe continue to create Quick Tip Videos to complement our online training courses and lessons. 90 second videos of little known features that can save lots of time.

OutlookWe launched our new Database Module (that follows the syllabus for ECDL) to complement our Computer Fundamental Series (Base Modules).

We continue to write for MS Office 2019, Teams, SharePoint and Microsoft 365.

We are here to help.  So please do get in touch if you need any further information on how we can support your learning needs, or have any specific, immediate issues you need to address with remote working. We are happy to adapt any of our training services to fulfil your business need and support you and your staff during this time.

Best wishes
The Bite Size Team
