Inhouse (on-site) courses

We give bespoke one or two day web writing workshops for writers, editors and web staff who need to understand how to prepare effective content for their websites or intranets.

Most of our training involves bespoke one or two day web writing workshops. They incorporate screen grabs from your website or intranet, and we create written exercises based on your own material. We also include an element of consultancy to help you optimise your website.

Our clients benefit from the very latest research from around the world. We show websites that have been transformed through the introduction of good web writing practice, and introduce some intriguing new ideas.

elearning and public course backup

Uniquely, clients have the reassurance that we also run public courses in London and Edinburgh and that we have an online web writing course. In this way we can provide ongoing additional training without the expense of an inhouse course.

If anyone misses the course then they can do our elearning web writing course to catch up.

'The trainers were both superb and I particularly like the way they supported their teaching with solid research findings.'
