TY students receive Microsoft Qualification

Transition Year students 2018/2019 were the first group to complete the Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) ICT course which replaces the ECDL course previously offered in the school. This new course supports the roll-out of Office 365 in the school and provides students with recognised certification in Microsoft Office applications. 

The MOS course is delivered by Ms Brosnan and Ms Mullaney through a blended learning approach of self-directed learning in our computer labs using Microsoft courseware, GMetrix testing software and Certiport exam software. 

Some of the modules on offer to students include Microsoft Word, MS Powerpoint (Presentations), MS Excel (Spreadsheets) and MS Outlook with the opportunity to complete additional modules such as Expert in Word and Excel.  Students receive individual MS Certification for each examination successfully completed.  This certification will be very beneficial to students and provide them with valuable IT skills for future studies at third level and in the employment industry.

Pictured are some of the TY class 2018/2019 with their Certificates.
