Beginners start here! End Users of SharePoint need to get acquainted, familiar, confident and productive with the myriad of confusing features found in SharePoint.

Organisations adopting Microsoft SharePoint 2013 will find it changes the way in which business data is organised and accessed, so everyone within the business is likely to require basic SharePoint familiarity. This course is a one-day hands-on workshop showing how - and when - to use SharePoint features, and is available as a standard or bespoke course, tailored specifically to your own SharePoint configuration. For courses at your establishment we have a number of different delivery options that involve shaping the content to utilise your own SharePoint environment - please ask for details.

Who is this course for

The standard course content is aimed at bringing end-users with limited exposure to SharePoint up to a familiarity level at which they can comfortably use common SharePoint functionality as part of their daily work processes.

Bespoke course offerings will use an organisation's own implementation as the basis for material and exercises (using screenshots and features in context with that particular configuration), with workshop content tailored specifically to the duties and responsibilities expected of attending roles.

Purpose of the course

Run as a very hands-on workshop, this course aims to familiarise users with the fundamentals of SharePoint. Practical exercises allow delegates to personalise their corporate identity, create and manage documents and lists, view and filter content, search for (and display) business information, follow pre-defined workflows and use some customised webparts.

You will learn how to

Understand terminology and concepts associated with SharePoint
Appreciate roles and responsibilities associated with a SharePoint installation
Confidently use surveys, discussion boards, libraries, lists and views
Manage changes to document content in a structured and controlled manner
Edit and manipulate public content in Wikis and Web Pages using SharePoint tools
Create your own personal libraries and sites to manage information more effectively
Understand and manipulate security settings to fulfil business requirements
Improve productivity by integrating Office2010 products with SharePoint


Attendees should be comfortable with standard Office packages (Word, Excel, Outlook, etc) and be familiar with basic browser functionality. Prior knowledge or experience of SharePoint prior to the course is not assumed.

Benefits for you as an individual

Sharepoint has a dazzling array of wonderful features, many of which are unused simply because people are unaware of their existence, or have not been shown how to use them correctly. By attending this course, you will understand the variety of features available, focusing upon those that are delegated to your job role so that you can work independently and with increased efficiency.

Benefits for your organisation

Staff will gain the capability of using a wide variety of SharePoint features and functions, empowering them to manage business processes appropriate to their job function in a confident manner, maximising investment in within the Sharepoint environment.

By challenging the current ways in which we work, we seek improvements that reduce cost and increase efficiency, evolving into a more effective workforce.
