If you’ve ever considered working from home, or wanted to be your own boss, then working as a freelance proofreader might just be the answer. The work is interesting, flexible and can be carried out from home with a computer, internet connection and a phone.

You can train from home too with our self-study distance-learning course Essential Proofreading. Distance learning courses have come a long way in recent years, making them easier to work through, with more student support and a sense of community among fellow trainees.

If you are still unsure whether you have the discipline or the skills needed to study or work from home, why not download our free guide, Getting the best from Self-Study by Distance Learning? It addresses the common misconceptions about distance learning and includes top tips for making a success of your studies. It features case studies from people who have completed the course and become a freelance proofreader, and provides links to further sources of help and training.

So, if you are considering making a change, click the link below and download the free guide. This time next year you could be your own boss, working from home and escaping the pitch-black commute to the office in the cold and the wet. Now if that’s not enough to motivate you, we're not sure what is!
