Do you work in the media and communications industry? Maybe your day to day working load involves your ability to read and interpret content, quickly and accurately?
Well if so, why not enrol on an Online Proofreading and editing course?
It is such a vital skill to have, yet one that so many people lack today in the media. And the best thing about an Online Proofreading course is that you can study in your own time, without it getting in the way of your other work or commitments.
This is exactly what Sue Bailey did. She enrolled and studied whilst still working for a local newspaper. The course took her around 4 months to pass, and once she did, she then felt confident to undertake tougher tasks within the workplace.
This is what Sue had to say about the course, when we caught up her:
“I’m in a communications role and although I did a module on media law in a previous course, I felt that proofreading course was an interesting and essential subject for me as I deal with content, copy and articles in my day to day job.
“The course and the resources, such as online podcasts, links, and articles were very helpful – they more than met my expectations.
“The tutorial support was very good because my tutor was professional but also very friendly from the start which helps you over your fears when you’re in a new learning and virtual environment. I could also ask questions outside of the resource provided which was very helpful.
“I enjoyed the course content. I also love the fact that there are courses such as this available to full-time workers like me, they meet the needs of modern society. I feel more informed and a little more confident now rather than vague as I was before. Proofreading is such a useful skill to possess, especially when you work in the media industry like I do.
“All in all, I was very impressed with the Proofreading course I undertook, I was professionally delivered, represented excellent value for money, and only took a few months to complete.”
