Overview

This is the ideal webinar for anyone responsible for overseeing outgoing correspondence, paperwork, project proposals, and email throughout the course of the workday. You'll walk away with two tangible proofreading tools designed to make your job easier.

Description

Why you should Attend:Any document, media kit, or email bearing your organization's insignia or name must be absolutely error free. Even a careless mistake in an email can damage a leader's reputation and can make an entire organization look bad.It's all about our attention to detail.

Proofreading is a skill anyone can learn and improve. Very few business professionals actually have ever been TAUGHT how to proofread. So join us if:

  • You have ever forgotten to attach a document to an email
  • You've had to resend that email two minutes later with an "Oops, here it is" message
  • You've sent out mass correspondence with a big typo and didn't realize it until it was too late
  • You've ever accidentally omitted the "l" when typing the word "public" and not caught it in time (happens more often than you would think)
  • You've accidentally typed "form" instead of "from"
  • Or "you" instead of "your"
  • You've been guilty of taking texting short cuts in your business emails - or you know someone who does
  • You have a whopper of a proofreading blooper story of your own to tell
  • You're starting to miss errors of omission and other hard-to-catch mistakes


Areas Covered in the Session:

  • How to make sure documents leave your office error free
  • The "Newspaper Proof": A fail-safe three-step approach to proofreading
  • The "Proofreader's Power Pack": Which tools and resources are indispensable to a proofreader
  • How to proofread in a distracting office environment
  • How to spot errors of omission

  • How to catch the bloopers before the bloopers catch you!

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
