Productivity Suites

Microsoft Office 365 and Google Workspace are the two most commonly used platforms across Scotland that allow easier and more effective communication and collaboration between ELC staff teams. These platforms allow you to plan learning, update colleagues and attend events, at cluster, local and national levels. With more ELC practitioners working at different times throughout the day, making the most of these time saving tools can really help to improve workflow and decrease workload.
