Stephen Lloyd Training’s In-house Courses

In-house Courses Our in-house training is fully flexible - the length, content and level of a course can be tailored for you. You might choose to have a one-day proofreading and grammar course for support staff, a report writing seminar for managers, or perhaps a copywriting workshop based on your organisation's documents. Whatever your objectives, we will work with you to design a course that achieves them.

Before the course we can provide questionnaires to identify delegates' needs and can review documents to give individual feedback. Our post-course reporting will supply valuable information on the effectiveness of the training and will help to highlight further development needs.

For a year after the course our support service will give your staff the opportunity to ask an unlimited number of additional questions and so continue to build their skills and confidence.

Business Writing

The aim of this wide-ranging course is to give participants the skills and confidence to write well. It teaches a structured approach to writing that will enable them to prepare a variety of business documents quickly and successfully.

Editing at Work

On this practical workshop participants will gain the skills to tackle any editorial task with confidence. Whether they are new to editing or have been in the role for some time without formal training, they will benefit from specialist techniques and expert advice.

Report Writing

Many people struggle to write good reports because they have never been shown how to. This course will fill that gap and give participants the expertise to prepare reports that are clear, professional and contemporary.

Bid & Proposal Writing

Writing winning bids and proposals takes skill and care. Taught by an experienced bid writer, this detailed workshop will provide valuable insights and powerful techniques that will maximise participants’ chances of success.


This is a very practical course, with a focus on reviewing and improving participants’ own copy. Our expert tutor will pass on tips and insights that will transform dull or ineffective copy, making it engaging and compelling.

Press Release Writing

Everyone wants to get their news stories into the media, but many press releases are ignored by journalists. This workshop will identify the ingredients for success and show participants how to apply them to their own press releases.

Minute Taking

This course will provide participants with effective strategies and practical advice that will enable them to record all types of meeting accurately and professionally. It will remove the anxiety from minute taking and replace it with confidence.

Writing for the Web

On this course participants will learn how to plan, structure and write online content that gets messages across effectively. Whether they write for the website or the intranet, they will leave the workshop with the tools to tune up their web writing.

Grammar at Work

For years grammar and punctuation were poorly taught in British schools. As a result many people lack confidence in these essential skills. This course looks at why grammar and punctuation matter and reviews the rules in a clear and supportive way.

Letter Writing

When your staff respond to complaints, communicate with customers or write marketing messages, you want their letters to make the right impression and get the right results. This course will give them the skills they need.

Proofreading at Work

If errors appear in your organisation’s web pages, reports, brochures and emails they let you down. This course will give your staff the skills to spot and correct mistakes before they cause embarrassment, confusion or even loss of business.

Email Writing

For many people, writing emails is a daily task. But the quality of emails is often poor. Many organisations are recognising the importance of training staff to write good emails. This course is designed to make your staff effective communicators.

“We had some great feedback immediately following the workshop and, even more importantly, I am continuing to hear that the training has improved standards in report and letter writing.”
