Microsoft Office is an essential program in a Legal Secretary's repertoire. Whether it’s formulating documents in Word, tracking hours in Excel or fine-tuning an office presentation in PowerPoint, you would be hard-pressed to find a Legal Secretary or PA who does not use a Microsoft Office program daily. Microsoft Office skills are highly sought after and often mandatory with recruiters when they are looking to fill their next Legal Secretary vacancy. For these reasons, it is clear that Microsoft Office certifications are both sensible investments and hugely beneficial additions to your skill-set.
ILSPA aims to provide affordable legal secretarial training for its Students and Members, and this includes helping you gain additional certifications to excel in your career. Through our long-standing partnership with Prodigy Learning, we can do just that.
Prodigy Learning has worked closely with Microsoft since 2000. It is a Microsoft Gold Application Development Partner and a Global Training Partner of Microsoft in Education. This enables it to offer the Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) certification which is the world’s most recognised computing qualification for Microsoft’s Office applications. ILSPA Students and Members are entitled to an exclusive discount with Prodigy Learning, enabling you to pay just £95 (RRP £215) on each MOS certification package.
The MOS Certification is available in MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint or Outlook. Each course is provided in the form of a Self-Start eKit that can be studied remotely and at your own pace. Students are taught via instructor-led video training and have access to practice test software to help ensure exam readiness. When you have gained confidence with your new skills, you can use your voucher to take your exam either online or at a MOS Testing Centre.
After gaining MOS certification, learners get immediate access to a Digital Certificate and Transcript. You will also be able to put the MOS logo on your CV and digital badge.
