Overview

If you are unsure about the basic rules of writing, or missed out on them altogether at school, this one-day writing course is for you. It will clear up all those questions, plus any others you may have about grammar and punctuation. It will show you a few simple techniques that will make your documents both easier to write and better to read. And it will increase your confidence in your own ability to write clearly, correctly and effectively.

Description

Over the day you will cover:

  • the principles of good writing at work
  • clarifying your aims
  • planning and structuring your work
  • an introduction to basic grammar and sentence construction
  • keeping it simple: writing in plain English
  • avoiding waffle and other obstacles for the reader
  • common myths and mistakes
  • commas, apostrophes and other punctuation pitfalls
  • confusing words and usages
  • capitals, numbers and other style points
  • making your writing look good
  • checking and proofreading
  • a personal action plan
  • a year of free support


We will use a combination of demonstration, discussion and practical group exercises to help you write clear, well-structured English, and improve your general business-writing skills. The course also includes a year of free support from your trainer, and is as an excellent preparation for any further writing courses you may wish to take.
