Editing at Work
Our in-house copy-editing course will give your staff the skills to edit a wide range of documents, review colleagues’ work and improve their own writing.
We teach a two-stage approach to editing. The first stage is to ensure the document achieves its aim, is well structured and has the optimum content. The second stage is to review details such as clarity, choice of words, tone of voice, layout and legal issues.
The course covers all these topics and more, to give participants the same range of skills that publishers use to achieve their high standards.
A detailed manual and year of free advice from the tutor will add valuable extra help to ensure your staff continue to develop after the course.
By the end of this course your staff will be able to:
An introduction to editing
Software for editors
Looking at the big picture
Beginnings and endings
Liaising with the author
Editing multi-author documents
Plain English essentials
Working with words
Consistency and corporate style
Grammar and punctuation
The Editing at Work course is available as an in-house course, which we would run at your premises. For more information,.
