Collaborating with Microsoft Teams

Connected Voice Sector Connector logo

This Sector Connector workshop will be delivered on Microsoft Teams in collaboration with Monju Meah BCAv, Digital Inclusion Project Manager at a Global Tech Consultancy with 50+ years’ experience in technology services and digital transformation.

In an increasingly digital world, software like Microsoft Teams is a highly beneficial tool to manage work effectively and enable remote collaborative working.

This session will explore Microsoft Teams functionality and help equip you with the digital knowledge to utilise the platform and bring efficiencies to your online working practices.

This interactive session will enable participants to:

  • Understand the core functions of Microsoft Teams
  • Practice new skills and navigate through the platform
  • Understand the different features of video calls
  • Learn how to share documents and collaborate on projects
  • Create and manage a Teams channel.

To participate in this session, you will need access to a device with Microsoft Teams.  If you have any queries about joining, please contact in advance.

If your organisation operates in Gateshead and has any digital inclusion issues (for example in terms of accessing devices, internet, or support), and you are interested in future similar events, please contact Alessandra Mondin.

Our training and events are funded from a variety of sources, allowing us to offer them for free to eligible organisations. Please check the eligibility requirements for each session before signing up, as this varies from course to course. If your organisation is not eligible for a free session you may be interested in one of our tailored training packages.

You can keep up to date with the latest training and events from Connected Voice by subscribing to our fortnightly email bulletin.

Attendance and value Our team have dedicated significant time and resource to create and deliver our excellent range of training and events. Connected Voice is funded for this work, allowing us to offer these events free of charge. However, we expect people who have registered to prioritise attendance and let us know as soon as possible if there is a barrier to attending. We may follow up with you if you are absent without letting us know.

Delivery method This online session will be delivered remotely using Microsoft Teams. We have taken every step to make this as simple, accessible and secure as possible. We will be able to advise on how to access the session easily and without having to download software. Microsoft Teams can be accessed by a smartphone, or any device with a camera and microphone such as a laptop, tablet or desktop computer.

Accessibility Please let us know in advance if you have any accessibility requirements that would help you get the most out of this session. We will do everything we can to accommodate them. We can provide a BSL interpreter for training and events on request, but ask you to give us enough advance notice to enable this to be organised. To maximise resources, we are unable to provide BSL interpreters for all sessions unless we know this is essential.

Evaluation This event is free to attend but all participants will be required to complete a short evaluation on completion. This feedback enables us to continue delivering a free programme of training and events.

For security and practical reasons: You can only book one place for yourself. If a colleague wants to attend, they will need to book separately themselves. You must give us all the essential information requested so that we know your registration is genuine.

If circumstances change, you must advise us as soon as possible so that the place isn’t wasted as we have limited spaces for each event. You must also advise us if a substitute person from your organisation is attending in your place. We will be monitoring non-attendance, and may not accept future bookings from regular non-attenders.
