Advanced Spelling

Having excellent spelling skills is a huge asset in any job, helping you get your message across exactly as intended. Unfortunately, the English language is not exactly straightforward, with many seemingly conflicting rules about capitalisation, prefixes, suffixes and phonetics. This course reviews the most common mistakes people make when spelling, giving you the ability to improve your writing and communicate with ease.

Business Report Writing

Many companies use business reports as the basis for numerous decisions, including the allocation of resources and distribution of staff. Reports are also used to track a project’s progress and to communicate the results of various campaigns. Learn how to write persuasive and factual business reports with this thorough course covering all the basics.

Content Creation

It can be hard to get your message out to the masses, especially if you are just starting to create your own content. There is a lot of work that goes into determining what your target market wants, how they want it delivered and how to put it together in a way that they are going to find interesting. This course reviews each detail of content creation, telling you how to put together images, texts and videos geared to inspiring your audience and gaining more page views.


Copywriting is a skill that is a lot more involved than it sounds. Taking existing information and transforming it to suit your needs involves research skills, familiarity with search engine optimisation, as well as the ability to carefully craft a clear and compelling message. Learn how to adapt to different tones, implement SEO strategies in your work and connect with your audience.

How to Write Better Emails

Experts believe that there were over 281 billion emails sent and received each day throughout 2018. By 2022, they believe this number is going to grow to more than 333 billion. This means it is more important now than ever before to understand how to use email to your advantage. Learn more about email etiquette and other tips on how to get your message read.

Note Taking

Note taking is an incredibly useful skill; one that can push you to excel in the classroom as well as the boardroom. Carefully writing down information as you are hearing it helps you to process it faster, commit more to memory and gives you a resource if there are disputes later on. This course teaches you several techniques you can use to improve your note-taking skills.


Everyone makes mistakes, but you don’t have to let those errors sneak out into the world. Careful proofreading takes your writing to the next level, removing all the typos and grammatical mistakes and leaving only your well-written words behind. Learn the fundamentals of proofreading, including the most common mistakes writers tend to make.

Punctuation Mastery

Punctuation misuse is one of the most common errors made when writing. Something as minor as a wrong comma or misplaced apostrophe can change the entire meaning of a sentence. This course goes into detail about the punctuation rules all English writers should know, including how to use commas, semicolons and quotation marks in your work.

Writing Sales Proposals

A perfectly written sales proposal can quite literally change your life. A sales proposal is at the heart of most major business deals. If your prospective client cannot understand the heart of your pitch, they are not going to invest in your product. Learn how to put together sales proposals your clients find easy to understand and incredibly compelling.
