Suitable for: All What does this mean?
With practical exercises and examples this course will build on your skills to make you a more confident writer. It will help you to think and plan before you write so you can choose the best style and structure to get your message across.
Well-written reports deliver information that is:
- Concise and clear
- Easily understood
- Helpful to decision-makers.
We will cover:
- Knowing what you want to say
Understanding your audience and being clear about your purpose to help you identify your key messages.
- Choosing the best tone and structure
Using your messages to create a logical structure and find the right style for your report.
- Presenting information effectively
Being relentlessly clear is the best way to gain understanding. We will clarify what plain English is and how to use it, as well as how to summarise and use graphs, tables and charts well.
Bring a recent report (or one from your to-do list) to reflect on throughout the day. You’ll be able to apply what you learn directly to this example. This will help you to feel confident about putting your new skills to use.
