There are very few businesses and industries that have not needed to embrace IT over the last 10 – 20 years in order to remain competitive. A wide range of business processes such as accounting, marketing, ordering and invoicing are all streamlined by the use of computers. Life moves fast, but technology moves even faster. If you don’t take the opportunity to brush up on your skills your business could be missing out.
Truro and Penwith College are constantly developing training programmes in partnership with local businesses. Offering both accredited and non-accredited courses, the College strives to support business objectives to help deliver improved productivity as a result of better IT skills.
Here are our top three reasons you should consider improving IT skills within your organisation.
Work smarter not harder
From online accounts and ordering, to using your smart phone to manage your time, there are many reasons why computers have taken over the workplace. Learning to use office tools and online apps can help manage workload, prioritise and ensure deadlines are hit time and time again.
Save time and money
It is true to say that the more you use technology the more familiar it becomes and the faster it is to use, we are all familiar with the phrase “time is money”, and for good reason. Developing IT skills means both you and members of your team can solve simple problems that arise without needing a specialist to help!
Boost your confidence and communication
Projects, tasks and deadlines become easier to achieve when you are confident with your IT skills. Meetings, reports, presentations and even communicating with clients gets easier and more efficient.
Whether it is essential skills or more advanced procedures we offer a wide range of accredited programmes in IT, all of which can be viewed here.
It doesn’t stop there, bespoke courses focussing on IT packages that support key business processes can also be designed in partnership with you, all with the aim of increasing productivity and delivering results for your business.
