This course is intended to promote clear, unambiguous communication. It requires attendees to follow a process in writing workplace specific texts. The ability to write plain language will improve the quality of business correspondence and other texts that are specific to a workplace environment. The achievement of this programme enables attendees to recognise and use effectively textual conventions and features specific to business texts including those that require a particular format and/or specified legislated requirements. They carefully scrutinise their own and others’ writing for accuracy, appropriateness and impact on different audiences and contexts. They edit and change where appropriate. A company’s dependability and professionalism are often assessed from its written communication. Therefore, it is essential that anyone who is required to communicate in writing or handle written documents be trained to deal systematically with the written word.
Upon completion the delegates will be able to:
Use writing skills for specific purposes, audiences, and contexts.
