Basic Business Writing Skills


Course synopsis:

This course is aimed at developing the knowledge, skills and capabilities for effective business writing. To communicate effectively in the business world learners will be trained to prepare clear, concise and professional English written communication. Participants will also explore the underlying values and attitudes which convey respect for one’s audience when communicating.

Aimed at Junior to Mid-level professional employees – this course serves to an awareness regarding writing styles, and the correct use of language. It is most useful to delegates with English as a second language, but will prove beneficial as a refresher to all who are reasonably new in the corporate world.

Course Content:

Module 1: Preparation and planning
Module 2: Structuring the Document
Module 3: Creating the first draft
Module 4: Editing your first draft

Distance learning

The course content is directed towards outcomes-based education. For this reason, delegates are consistently evaluated by the workbooks submitted during the course to ensure that they have assimilated the subject to a satisfactory degree and will be able to perform the tasks taught.

In-house Presentation

Ideally, the course should be presented away from the normal working environment of the employees, thus eliminating interruptions and distraction from their daily workload. To facilitate interaction, the total number of delegates attending the course should not exceed 30.

Each delegate will be handed a full and comprehensive set of reference notes. The study material is copyrighted to PBS College.
