Publishing Training Centre: Editorial Skills for Business

12/10/2017

£435

This practical course introduces the role of editing and proofreading content in any business. It has been developed to meet the needs of all organisations that generate and prepare copy for presentation or publication in digital or print formats. The course explains what needs to be done, and why, and the basics of marking up on paper and working on-screen.

Using a blended learning approach, delegates will download and complete a pre-course exercise, to become engaged with the new skills straight away. The work will then be brought to the classroom training session, to stimulate discussion and aid improvement. Model answers will enable trainees to gauge their progress.

Editorial staff at publishers, charities, membership organisations, or any business with some publishing function will benefit from this course. It will also suit people responsible for, or who work on, corporate communications, and in-house administrators who brief editorial freelancers and/or who are involved in quality control.

Learn how to: understand the editorial process from start to finish; identify and fix ambiguity, poor grammar and structure; achieve consistency through a house style; communicate effectively and knowledgeably with clients, writers, designers, programmers and any other stakeholders.
