Excel is an incredibly useful tool to help you store, analyse and present your data. Even with basic skills there's a lot you can do to help with your oragnisation's monitoring and evaluation practice - but how do you get started?

This session will introduce the basics of using Excel including creating a file, adding data to, navigating the toolbar and best practice considerations.

There are two other follow on Excel sessions you can then join, to build your knowledge and skills level further.

This session will cover
We will cover 4 topics in this session:
Topic 1 – a quick tour & viewing and formatting your data
Topic 2 – sorting your data
Topic 3 – an introduction to formulae
Topic 4 – some printing tips

Pre-course requirement
You will need to be able to join this session from a PC or laptop with Excel installed to be able to participate in the training. The session is designed for people using Microsoft Excel 2016, 2019, 2021 or the Microsoft 365 Excel desktop App on a Windows PC / laptop. If you have an earlier version of Excel, are using the Microsoft 365 Web App in a browser, or are working on a Mac, you'll find that some of the features we look at either don't exist or are accessed differently. Please check the version of Excel you are running by opening Excel, click on ‘file’ and then on ‘account’ and you will see the version you are running in the right hand-side of the window.

This course is for staff, trustees or volunteers of small London charities or community groups who are getting started on their data and digital journeys and want to better collect, analyse and present data to influence change.


This is an online interactive live training session. You'll take part in interactive exercises such as breakout room discussions, polls or chat conversations.

*You will be asked to complete individual technical tasks on your PC or laptop. You will not be able to join this training using a mobile device. It's likely that you will need to either create online accounts or download appropriate software, which we'll tell you about in advance.
