Who is this course for?
This course is for content writers, editors or reviewers who write and manage online content but who are new to plain English or would like a refresher. Trainees are likely to have to write text, news or social media posts about their organisation for their website. The course would also be useful to other staff members who want to sharpen their writing techniques.
Description of course
This course will use a mix of presentation, relevant examples, discussion and exercises to introduce participants to the benefits and techniques of plain English when writing or reviewing web content. The training aims to be informal with regular opportunities for questions and answers. We will use examples of content from some participants’ own websites.
Note: This course is focused on writing in plain English. It is not about building a website.
