Who is the course for?
The course is aimed at anyone wanting to improve their written English skills and have the confidence to place their apostrophes in the right place.
By taking the course you will not only be improving your written English skills, you will also gain an accredited certificate to show current or future employers that you have attained a proficiency in written communications. The course also includes a section on applying for jobs making sure your covering letter and curriculum vitae have a fighting chance to get beyond the initial sift.
Accurate communication is very important for a business; a typo or spelling mistake can invite complaint letters, cause costly misunderstandings and even lose sales. So, there is very good reason why improving the standard of English is so important in organisations.
How Does This Course Work?
Take the course anywhere
The course is taken entirely online, so you can take the course from any PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone that has an internet connection.
Working through the course, you will read short texts, watch videos and answer questions. When you answer questions, your results are stored in your Grade book and at the end of each section, you complete an assignment that you submit online and is marked by your tutor.
Your personal tutor will give you feedback on your assignment and help you through the course and be there to answer any of those head-scratching queries you may have.
Work at your own pace
You have three months to complete the course, which is more than enough time. However, if you should need more time, then let us know and we can extend the course for a small fee.
Completing the course
You will need to achieve a pass mark of 75% to complete the course and receive your certificate. If certain activities or assignments fail to achieve this level then you will be able to retake these parts.
A certificate is sent out to you with two weeks of completing the course.
