You may have seen the recent article on the University website about the success of the Microsoft Certified Educator (MCE) exams that were held during the Learning & Teaching Conference earlier this month when 27 staff successfully achieved MCE certification.

I’m pleased to share that Neal Harper’s team in ITDS are facilitating another opportunity for staff to undertake not just the MCE exam but also any Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) exams.  Again, we are able to offer this free of charge thanks to our partners – Prodigy Learning.  This is a great opportunity for all staff to gain formal certification for their skills.

Microsoft Certified Educator (MCE)

Microsoft Certified EducatorPrimarily aimed at academic members of staff, the certification is validation of your global technology competencies required to facilitate 21st century learning using Microsoft’s “21 CLD” framework and professional tools.  To prepare for the exam, I’d encourage participants to review Microsoft’s 21st Century Learning Design course on their Education Community.  Successful completion of the MCE professional qualification is an accolade and testament to how we prepare students to become future ready at Teesside.

Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS)

Microsoft Office SpecialistAimed at staff in all roles, MOS certification is for those looking to demonstrate proficiency in one or more Office programs.  Successful completion of these professional qualifications is an accolade and testament to demonstrating industry-leading skills and knowledge to command the full features and functionality of Microsoft Office.  Exams are available in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and Access.  Some additional information on MOS is available here from Microsoft.
