The IT Skills Pathway provides access to training and assessment for the main Microsoft Office products, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, SharePoint and more. The courses range from ‘Basic’ through to ‘Advanced’.

The Pathway has been developed to provide an officially recognised route of learning and certification for the whole NHS workforce. Its purpose is to encourage everyone working within the NHS to review their current IT skills and knowledge against recognised standards, determine what their skill gaps are and then identify their current and future training requirements based on the products that are available.

If you would like to speak to someone about any aspect of the IT Skills Pathway please email the Trust’s centre manager, Susan Wragg
