This practical course introduces the role of editing and proofreading content in any business. It has been developed to meet the needs of all organisations that generate and prepare copy for presentation or publication in digital or print formats. The course explains what needs to be done, and why, and the basics of marking up on paper and working on-screen.
Using a blended learning approach, delegates will download and complete a pre-course exercise, to become engaged with the new skills straight away. The work will then be brought to the classroom training session, to stimulate discussion and aid improvement. Model answers will enable trainees to gauge their progress.
This course was previously called 'Editorial Skills for Business'.
Our short courses are run at a variety of venues in Central London. Information and directions can be found on our Contact Us page. Please check your Joining Instructions for your specific course venue.
Note that most of our short courses can also be run as In-Company events.What to do when your editorial brief just says “make it better” Please read our Terms & Conditions
