Essential grammar and punctuation training
Should you write â€˜the company isâ€™ or the â€˜company areâ€™? What's the difference between â€˜whichâ€™ and â€˜thatâ€™? How exactly do you use a semicolon? When do you need a hyphen? Can you start a sentence with â€˜butâ€™? If youâ€™ve ever asked yourself any of these questions, an Emphasis grammar and punctuation course will sort you out.

Confidential writing analysis and questionnaire
Our unique writing analysis will give you the confidence and focus you need to improve your writing efficiently and effectively. Because it focuses on no fewer than 15 specific business-writing skills, you'll discover your strengths as well as areas for improvement.
You'll also receive a questionnaire ahead of the day so you can let the trainer know exactly what you want to achieve. Taken together, these ensure that no delegate gets left behind and everyone benefits from training appropriate to their level.
We take your privacy seriously, so your results won't be shared with other delegates (unless you choose to do so yourself). And if you give us any sensitive documents to analyse, we will be happy to sign a non-disclosure agreement.
All our trainers are experts in writing for business, with a background in industries where writing is the main focus. So they are well equipped to handle even the trickiest grammar and punctuation queries and offer practical advice.
Each must go through rigorous selection and training processes, and pass a six-stage series of tests, before we consider them qualified to work for you.
Supporting you after the course
We provide a year's phone and email support after the course, so you can return to your desk confident you'll continue to get the help you need. You'll be able to tackle whatever you write with peace of mind, knowing that whatever your grammar and punctuation query, you'll be within easy reach of the solution.
And we'll be happy to arrange further post-course analysis, training and coaching specific to your needs if you want it, to ensure you gain maximum long-term benefit.
