I38 - Microsoft PowerPoint

Acquiring skills to underpin better lesson creation and delivery.

PowerPoint is an under-used teaching resource / technique in the primary classroom. This is mainly because teachers just haven’t the adequate skills set to easily create a good PowerPoint. This course will change that for YOU! Like hundreds of teachers before you, join our PowerPoint course this year and leave with a set of skills that you will continue using for the rest of your teaching career. Your future lessons will have the PowerPoint edge!

1000 free PowerPoint lessons to download, edit and use.


This self-paced on-line course focuses on how to create and deliver an effective lesson using Microsoft Powerpoint.


The on-line format of the course enables you to study when and where you want to learn. Content is divided into 5 modules which you can complete in any order at any time.

Participants are encouraged to interact with one another using the communication tools (forum, chat, e-mail) provided by the CPD College learning system. Active facilitation throughout the course provides expert interaction, guidance and feedback for all participants. Assignments and questions which call for critical reflection, self-analysis and a reasoned response punctuate this highly interactive web based course.


On completion of this course each participant can download their CPD record and Certificate of completion. The Certificate of completion demonstrates your achievement in completing this professional development course.

Learning outcomes

Through engagement with the course content, teachers will be empowered to create and deliver lessons using the exciting medium of PowerPoint. They will be further encouraged to download, edit and share the thousands of existing PowerPoint lessons that exist on the internet as a result of the hard work of teachers worldwide. We anticipate that the knowledge and insights gained by participants will positively impact on classroom lessons and teaching in the coming year.
