The process of creating professional documents doesn’t finish when the writing is done. Effective proofreading is the critical final step that ensures the work you send out is clear, consistent and error-free.

The risks of not proofreading (or not doing it well) extend from embarrassing typos that undermine clients’ confidence to financial headaches or even legal trouble.

This bespoke, practical workshop will train your team to proofread their documents – or their colleagues’ work – effectively, so that everything they send out meets your high standards. As well as learning the theory, your team will be practising and testing their skills throughout the session. And we’ll build the materials using real examples of your content, to ensure every exercise is relevant.

There is a lot of scope to adapt this training to your needs. We can run it as a half-day, focusing purely on proofreading techniques and practice, or extend it to include refreshers on grammar and punctuation or your house style. You may also choose to include our unique pre-course writing analysis for each attendee.

By the end of this training, attendees will know how to:

proofread effectively on hard copy and onscreen
mark up documents or PDFs to make their corrections clear
spot typos, autocorrect errors and mistakes in punctuation and grammar
identify problems with formatting and layouts
check boilerplate text
ensure consistency of terminology and house style
flag queries for the writer to ensure content and data are accurate.
