’Tailored Web Writing Course'
Our Tailored Web Writing Course has been running successfully for more than eight years.
It’s a tried and tested package that has attracted positive reviews from people working in every major sector of the economy. If you’re seeking an effective course in writing for the web, this has to be a serious option.
Our course has proved popular because it is completely customisable. Tell us your needs and we will address them in the training.

A quick overview
Available as either a one-day or two-day package, our Tailored Web Writing Course gives you the tools and techniques to create well-crafted websites that connect with readers and help you to build long-term relationships with them.
Wherever possible we’ll show you how the rules of good web writing can be applied to your site. And we’ll reinforce these points through interactive review sessions and skill-building exercises.
Give us the URLs of your web pages and we’ll provide you with a professional appraisal of your writing, letting you know where we believe your strengths and weaknesses lie, and how you can improve.
