Mastering Excel

Courses provided by ISD Digital Skills Development aimed at improving your Excel skills.

Excel is an extremely powerful tool that everyone should know how to use and our courses cover many of its diverse range of features. Our Essential Skills programme is ideal for ensuring you have a really solid foundation in the core functions of Excel.  At each workshop, participants complete tasks on a worksheet in a classroom setting with guidance available if they need it. 

Our Tips and Tricks and In a Nutshell sessions offer a quick demonstration of some useful features even experienced users might not be familiar with. Note that Winning with charts is about charts generally, not just in Excel.  We also have courses specifically on creating charts and pivot tables in Excel and the tricky but useful VLookup function.  Finally, if you really want to do some serious data analysis, we have two courses on statistical functions in Excel.  Note that we have a separate theme covering other data analysis tools.
