A Gainsborough woman lands job after taking part in a Microsoft Office course at Riverside Training. 

Joan Smithson recently attended courses at Riverside covering all aspects of  Microsoft Office - one of many courses we run aimed at supporting people to develop their skills.  

Joan had been made redundant due to the pandemic in 2020 and was looking to hone her skills ahead of an interview in which she would be tasked with showing her knowledge of Microsoft Office.  

In partnership with Lincolnshire County Council, the course takes learners through how to use Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, providing those who attend with the skills they need to create professional-looking documents and master shortcuts and formulas.  

After the session Joan stayed on to practice her skills on the computers provided in the centre. 

And Joan was successful in the interview and is soon to start her new administration role. 

The Riverside tutor said: “Joan did really well. She was willing and keen to step out of her comfort zone and learn new things to give her the best possible chance of gaining employment.”
