St. Annes College Grammar School

Microsoft Office Certification

St Annes College Grammar School is now registered as a “Microsoft Office Specialist Authorised Testing Centre”.

This is a first for any secondary school in the area.

The school now offers students the opportunity to gain Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) certification in the world’s most widely used application suite, Microsoft Office 365/2019.

Inadequate knowledge of Microsoft Office is so detrimental to higher education studies, that nearly all universities and colleges offer MOS certification in-house to their students and faculty.

By offering our pupils the chance to earn MOS certification before leaving school, we are giving them a chance to stand out when applying for a place at a college or university, or indeed a job.

The Microsoft Office Certifications are explained below:

MOS certification helps students differentiate themselves in today’s competitive job market. It broadens their employment opportunities by proving they have advanced skills in Microsoft Office applications.
