Effective workplace writing skills are a key competency for any professional.  The focus of this short course is to improve your formal writing skills, and increase your efficiency in producing documents.

Is this course relevant to you?  If part of your role includes creating high quality, original documents, correspondence or reports, then this document writing course will benefit you at any stage in your career. If having to write a short report or presentation brings you a degree of stress and anxiety, or the process seems to take up a disproportionate part of your work day, you will definitely benefit from this course.

We primarily deal with short reports, emails and presentations in the course.

The course will help you to analyse your audience, identify the message you wish to convey to them, then using this knowledge, write influential and compelling copy. You’ll learn a range of techniques and styles that will allow you to engage readers and inspire them to take action.  
The course is delivered face-to-face, allowing you to be able to share first-hand experiences, ideas and questions with other students and our experienced facilitators and technical writers who are known for their excellence, expertise and commitment to achieving successful outcomes. Studying with other like-minded people will allow you to engage with them and build up your network.

Document Writing Essentials begins with an examination of the development cycle, focussing on how to scope the need in greater detail, researching to match your scope and then structuring the document to suit the content you have to write. You also learn to manage the review and sign-off processes for your document efficiently.

We then move on to explain and develop skills with a number of key topics in grammar and expression.  Throughout the document writing course, you will be presented with ongoing opportunities to integrate your knowledge and develop your skills through practical writing activities.

At the end of this course, the documents, reports and emails you write will be concise, sharp and focused.
