Our online Tutor-Guided courses provide students with personal tutor support for the duration of study. Specific courses are fully assessed and lead to the award of a certificate of achievement from the Publishing Qualifications Board (PQB)

e-Learning Modules

Our e-Learning Modules form a core programme of concentrated, online courses that focus on specialist topics relevant to an editor's working life. They are designed to build on a foundation of existing skills and experience.

In-Company Training

In-Company training can be delivered as one of the current short courses or bespoke training can be designed. We commission one of our experienced tutors to prepare and deliver the course, at the agreed time and place.
