Clear, reader-focused documents written in plain English facilitate decision making in business by being easy to read and understand. This one day course teaches techniques for producing clear documents written in plain English, avoiding false elegance and jargon. Our Plain English training combines lecture, demonstration and hands-on practice. Delegates have ample opportunity to discuss their specific requirements with the trainer. By using plain English you will save your organisation time and money. You will be more efficient and save time when you write.

Also, your customers will understand what you are trying to tell them first time. So staff will not spend endless hours on the phone sorting out misunderstandings, or answering questions that should have been dealt with in letters.

  • Apply the principles of plain English to any document type, from emails to reports
  • Project a positive image of your business
  • Avoid common errors in grammar, spelling and word usage

Exercises provide activity-based experience and help build delegates' confidence writing in plain English. These exercises can be tailored to deal with issues specific to your business. The course gives people an excellent grounding in plain-English techniques.

How does it Work?

Onsite Training is when we come to you to provide training on your premises or at a location of your choice. Not only will we run the course at a time and venue that suits you, we will also develop a unique programme particular to the developmental, cultural and business requirements of your company.

What's Involved?


Step 1 | After initial discussions, you meet with our training specialist. Here you both work together to design and sculpt a more comprehensive programme outline.

Step 2 | From this outline, a course is designed which addresses your exact needs. Sometimes this involves a completely new course designed from scratch, this depends on your needs.

Step 3 | Once you're happy with everything, the trainer will deliver the course at a venue of your choice on a date that suits.

Step 4 | Once complete, feedback will be gathered from delegates to ascertain the ‘true’ impact. And finally a report will be compiled for you outlining outcomes alongside your stated objectives.
