Publishing Training Centre: Introduction to Editorial Skills

07/03/2017 - 08/03/2017


Introduction to Editorial Skills has been created in collaboration with some of the UK’s major publishing houses, to offer a comprehensive introduction to modern publishing processes and the key publishing skills of copy-editing and proofreading.

For the very first time, the PTC is offering new editors the opportunity to learn proofreading and copy-editing skills, on-screen and on paper, in tandem. This is also the first PTC open course to offer PQB certification.

The course includes expert advice and practice carrying out on-screen and paper-based editorial work in a range of different types of content, and for both print and digital output.

Individuals working in book or journal publishing, in-house or freelance, wishing to develop copy-editing and proofreading skills, including editorial assistants, copy-editors, desk editors and production editors will benefit from this course. In addition, students wishing to start a career in publishing with formal training in editorial skills, as well as those who have to proofread and copy-edit as part of their job.

Learn how to: use the key skills of copy-editing and proofreading for various different types of content; understand how different methods of working impact the modern editorial workflow; and appreciate how the roles of the copy-editor and proofreader fit within today’s publishing process.

The course offers a unique three-step blended learning approach that combines self-study, a two-day classroom group course, and distance learning assessment.
