Course overview
This training looks at the process of writing, the importance of planning, revising and editing our written work. It looks at how we can structure our writing and how we can improve the style of it to inform, persuade and convince our readers. It also looks at examples of ‘real’ writing, from merchant and supplier situations and shows how we can improve the impact and clarity of that writing.

Who would benefit?
Managers, Assistant Managers, Office Managers/Supervisors, staff responsible for producing business related correspondence (including e-mail), and all staff who write at work.
