Public sector organisations: test your staff on IT for free Monday 14 November 2011 PDF Print Public sector organisations such as the Police, Fire Service, local councils and the Civil Service can now use free online tests to assess the IT training needs of employees. National IT training company, Wise Owl Business Solutions, has launched a website http://www.skills-assessment.net that allows employees to test their basic knowledge and understanding in applications such as Microsoft PowerPoint, Outlook, Word, Excel, Project and Access - for free. Employees answer 20 multiple choice questions in 20 minutes via the website. Results are instant and show if further training is needed. HR and training managers from these organisations can then decide whether to buy blocks of further online tests to address employees’ IT training needs. Prices range from 99 pence to £2.49 per test depending on the number ordered. Managers can then instruct employees to undertake these further online tests and see a summary of results via the website. The company also offers training in Office 2003, Office 2007 and Office 2010 plus SQL Server and .NET programming at centres in Manchester, London, Birmingham, Bristol, Leeds, and Edinburgh. Andy Brown, Managing Director of Wise Owl Business Solutions, said: “These free online IT tests allow public sector HR and training managers to carry out a training needs analysis or an assessment of an employee’s or employees’ IT skills - quickly, easily and at no cost to the organisation.” “The tests assess employees’ knowledge and ability to use day-to-day applications such as PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook and Access and ensure that employees are more productive for the organisation.” -ENDS- Date: 14 November 2011 Caption: Andy Brown, Managing Director of Wise Owl Business Solutions Limited.
