Accurate and concise writing is key to successful communication at work. Increasingly high pressured work environments often mean that emails, reports, summaries and articles are completed at speed to meet the fast pace of mounting deadlines. This need for urgency in getting your communications out can mean that accuracy and brevity suffer.

Proofing and editing your work is vital to ensure that it is accurate, understood and credible. Exercising good proofing and editing techniques across all your correspondences is crucial to guarantee that you communicate the exact message you intended. Spellcheck may be a useful basic tool, however, can’t be relied upon for every error.

By learning advanced skills and techniques to put into practice, proofing and editing your work can be an efficient and speedy process. Through workshops and practical exercises designed to support rapid learning, this course enables you to dramatically improve your written communication skills and return to work with a confidence in your proofing and editing abilities.
