Writing for the web course
Why is writing for the web so important?
- When people go online for information they want to find it quickly, and they only want to have to read it once.
- If people find your website unsatisfactory, they'll probably go to a competitor's.
In short, your web pages could be doing irreparable harm to your organisation.
Our one-day Writing for the web course teaches delegates how to communicate clearly and effectively to screen readers. We look at how people's reading behaviour changes when they go online, how to plan your message with the web in mind and how to write it in a clear, user-friendly way.
Throughout the course we use real examples from the web – good and bad – to illustrate the principles of effective web design and writing. We can also round off the course by reviewing some pages from your own site, and helping the delegates suggest improvements.
It's not just about classroom training
As with all our courses, and for no extra cost, delegates will:
- on the day – get to practise what they have learnt on some in-house examples, appraising and improving pieces of writing that are directly relevant to their work
- at the end of the day – receive a copy of our booklet 117 easy tips for getting your message across every time you write! This covers the same topics as the course workbook, but presented in a novel, engaging way that reinforces what they have learnt
- afterwards – have access to our online Writing plain English course for six months. This allows delegates to recap what they have learnt and practise their skills using interactive sessions and exercises.
The course costs £1295 a day for up to 12 people, plus our trainer's travel and accommodation costs. This includes all course materials, tailoring and access to our online course.
