The Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) Program

Jobs today require employees to have a blended mix of both business and technical skills that allow them to easily understand and execute on business objectives. Employers are looking for qualified and certified candidates that can fulfill this need.

The Microsoft Office Specialist certification validates these real world skills and prepares students for success in any work environment. By obtaining a MOS certification you hold an industry related credential that validates your qualifications and increases your opportunity to secure a better paying job.

You’ll have the opportunity to stand out above the crowd and prove you’re the right person for the position.

Microsoft Office Specialist Exam

The MOS certification enables you to tap the full features and functionality of the Microsoft Office System, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and Access, resulting in heightened levels of individual performance, confidence, and differentiation.

Dedicated Teachers from Abuja | Skype Call

Well it certainly has been a very busy time in “my world ” the past few months! Hence the lack of posting to my blog due to organising a wedding, starting a new position, and just getting involved in helping others through social media. 2015 has started off with very positive interactions and I am most certainly looking forward to getting involved, and challenging myself this year!

On Friday at 16h00 Nigerian time, I was invited by Wellington Oboh [Principal Education Officer at FCTA SEB] to address his teachers from the Anglican Girls Grammar School in Abuja, Nigeria. The nature of the call was to show them the benefits of the MSEN [Microsoft Educator Network] and to discuss how one could use Office Mix in the classroom. Such dedicated teachers to be interested in a Skype call from Cape Town at 16h00 on a Friday! I thoroughly enjoyed the session, although I could not see the teachers whilst presenting, they produced a short clip where I was able to see lovely Amen, the lady who addressed me with a question as to how the Educator Network would be beneficial for teachers. Below is a snippet from the Skype call…

During the presentation I shared a link to my Office Mix with which I created a walk through of the Microsoft Educator Network. Teachers who have not yet taken advantage of this fantastic resource, should sign up right now – click here to open the site and get cracking on your own Professional Development for Free.

CALL FOR COLLABORATION – THE ANGLICAN GRAMMAR SCHOOL FOR GIRLS IN ABUJA, NIGERIA WOULD LIKE TO COLLABORATE WITH OTHER ANGLICAN GIRLS SCHOOLS IN CAPE TOWN – PLEASE CONTACT ME IF YOU ARE KEEN TO GET YOUR SCHOOL INVOLVED.
