Course description

Report Writing In-house Course – a customisable in-house course

This in-house report-writing course covers the entire report-writing process and best practice for producing effective, well-written reports. As an essential way of presenting our work, it is critical that business reports are written to be informative, readable and engaging. 

This customisable in-house course is designed around each team or company's sector, organisational tone and writing requirements. By learning in small groups and with hands-on exercises, your team will discover how to tailor their writing to their readers, enabling them to create easy-to-read, impactful documents. 

And the learning starts before the course even begins – in the lead-up to the course, each participant has the opportunity to submit a writing sample, helping Emphasis Training to identify areas of improvement and develop a curriculum that will meet those needs. All participants also receive post-course support from the Emphasis Training helpline.
