Google Workspace Bootcamp for
Educational Support Staff

The AppsEvents Support Staff Bootcamp allows non-teachers to take their Google Workspace skills to the next level. 

Designed for beginner to advanced users, the two days are made up of five sessions presenting tools corresponding to the level of the participants (detailed below). 

The focus is on hands-on activities, culminating with an activity that allows the creation of something staff will be able to use the next day.

Level Up in Gmail, Hangouts and Calendar

Email getting you down? Calendar invites coming out of your ears? Learn how to be more organised in Gmail by organising and filtering unwanted email so that you can focus on what really matters. Find out tips and tricks for creating and managing events in Calendar to make your days run super smoothly.

Collaboration is key

Google Drive brings us loads of possibilities when it comes to real time collaboration and document flow management. We’ll be looking at various ways to improve our workflow when using Google Docs, Sheets, Slides.

Soar with Forms

Google Forms is always a favourite amongst educational support staff. In this session we’ll discover why they are truly transformative, as well as diving into added functionality to supercharge your existing Forms.

Get Geeky with Sheets

Spreadsheets can appear scary and daunting, but after this session you’ll feel like a pro. Find out about formulas like IMPORTRANGE to help you spend more time getting things done and less time copying and pasting.

Google Chrome and Extensions, Add-ons for Docs, Sheets and Slides

Make your life easier by separating your work and personal accounts, as well as use some nifty extensions to add helpful features.

Google Sites - bringing all the tools together

Email getting you down? Calendar invites coming out of your ears? Learn how to be more organised in Gmail by organising and filtering unwanted email so that you can focus on what really matters. Find out tips and tricks for creating and managing events in Calendar to make your days run super smoothly.

Create Something Today for Tomorrow

Use the skills you’ve learned today to create something awesome which will help in your day to day work from tomorrow! The trainer will help the whole group with their individual projects so that you get the most out of the bootcamp.

Quiz the Trainer

Still looking for help with a problem you’ve been agonising over for a while? Quiz the trainer and have everybody benefit from your question.

Beginner/Advanced strand

While the topics for the sessions will be the same, we can cover slightly different tools in the two strands (for example Form Mule as a mail merging tool for the beginners, Autocrat for the advanced group. While autocrat brings more options, it is also more complex to set up!)

Advanced Additional topics

After consulting with your team we can also offer:

  • Google Groups for discussion and collaboration
  • Use task lists and Keep to manage projects
  • Publish folders to share with parents and students
  • Use Google Docs templates to share common formats with faculty
  • Advanced data analysis with pivot tables and Data Studio
  • Google Sites for publishing internal and external school information
