Am I the only one who gets bored with a document format after a few months, and then wants a completely different design? That PowerPoint that looked so smart last year looks a bit clichéd this term. A document which looked professional when you first published it, doesn’t look quite so good when it comes up on the screen this year.

Well, if you, or your staff, have that feeling, then time to explore the Academic Templates Collection on the Office website. The Office team are spending a lot of time getting good templates and training materials ready, and have released a big batch of templates that are specifically designed for teachers and schools, in a massive range of categories:

  • Award certificates
  • Calculators
  • Calendars
  • Design slides
  • Diagrams
  • imageFlash cards
  • Forms
  • Letters
  • Lists
  • Maths tables
  • Notes
  • Notebooks
  • Outlines
  • Papers
  • Planners
  • Plans
  • Presentations
  • Quizzes and tests
  • Reports
  • Schedules
  • SmartArt Graphics
  • Surveys

How many hours could you save colleagues by pointing them towards just one of these categories (like Award Certificates), or using our templates as a basis for creating your own school template, with your logo etc.

You can find them all over on the Office Academic Templates Collection
