Congratulations to the very first Microsoft Office Specialist Student @ Elkanah House who took the plunge and achieved 95.4% for his Word 2010 exam on Friday, 17th February 2012! Shaun approaches the opportunity to prepare for and achieve the MOS Certification very seriously. He is definitely a role model during the once a week lesson, timetabled into the academic day, at Elkanah House High School. The certification covers basic, intermediate and advanced skills of the Microsoft Office 2010 applications. I look forward to the achievements of the Grade 8 to Grade 11 students this year.
Well done Shaun, I am oh so proud of you!
Elkanah House offers students the newest Microsoft Office Specialist qualification which validates skills in the 2010 Microsoft Office system, covering Microsoft Office
Access 2010 or Outlook® 2010.
The programme is run over a two year period and exams are written either individually or as a class group. Each student is required to complete the four Microsoft Office Specialist exams over a two year period. Each time a student passes an exam, a Specialist Certificate is issued to the student. Tutorials are available for students after school as well as a timed practice test.
After completion of four exams, the student will achieve the Microsoft Office Specialist Core Certification.
Expert-level exams are also available for Word 2010 and Excel 2010.
Elkanah House has recently upgraded the IT Centre and Library Resource Centre computers – I have added some pics below.
