Business Writing Course for New Employees

This course will give new employees a comprehensive grounding in writing clear and concise documents. Over two days, delegates will gradually build up the skills and tools they need to write effectively. Each module starts with theory and then reinforces its ideas with practical writing exercises. The course starts with short exercises and gradually builds up to more complicated ones, as the delegates become more skilled at writing. Throughout the course, delegates’ writing will be individually assessed. We also provide a version of this course for non-native English speakers.

The speed with which we can move from one part of the course to the next will largely depend upon the skill level of the group being trained. The course is designed to work for between six and eight delegates. 

Business Writing for New Employees

  • Module 2 - Refresher on sentence and paragraph structure
