Perfect your Editing & Proofreading

In most organisations, editing or proofreading is carried out by people who have other responsibilities and not by professional editors. Sometimes they are chosen because they have an instinctive understanding of English grammar, but often they just happen to have some time available and an understanding of the topic.

However, editing isn’t just about checking grammar and punctuation, it’s also about making sure that your document is clear and concise and creates the maximum impact. The document may be going out to some of your most important customers or contacts, so it is important that it creates the right impression. A proofreading and editing course will ensure that companies do not waste the expense of creating their documents.

If you want to learn proofreading and editing skills that will add value to your documents, then this course is for you.
