This one-day, practical course aims to help you understand the principles of Plain English and show you how to use it in your day-to-day work.

By the end of the course, you'll be able to:

  • Consider what’s appropriate for your readers
  • Be specific by avoiding jargon and waffle
  • Cut out unnecessary words and rephrase complicated sentences with ease
  • Avoid wasting time by getting your message across first time, using a style and tone appropriate for your intended audience
  • Structure your document, for example email or report, to give it greater impact
  • Understand the importance of proof reading your written work

What you need to bring on the day

Please bring a piece of your own writing, for example information about your service, a report, policy, procedure or guidelines. You’ll get the chance to review it against Plain English principles during the day.
