Writing Skills Workshops

Hi All

Once again we are nearing the end of a financial year and I know some of you have a few $$$ squirreled away for training. The good news is we can do training at short notice using MS Teams and even doing face to face workshops. Of course you can pay this Financial Year and we can deliver the training after June if that suits you. Just as a reminder, here are our current Writing Skills workshops – more detail is in other parts of this website.

  1. Fundamental Writing Skills – ASO 2-4
  2. Fundamental Writing Skills for NESB – ASO 2-4
  3. Basic English for Public Servants – ASO 2-4
  4. Write to Succeed in the APS – ASO5-EL2
  5. Report Writing
  6. Writing Ministerials
  7. Selection Criteria and Interview Skills

We have had many thousands of APS staff on our workshops – some on more than one workshop. The feedback is always very positive and we like to think we have helped a few careers on the way to success.

Our trainers are experienced and well qualified to deliver this training and have run the workshops many times.

Finally a few hints to improve your writing skills.

  1. Write often and ask for feedback
  2. Read widely -books, magazines, newspapers, websites etc.
  3. Critically analyse what is written by you and others
  4. Practise editing and look for errors in spelling, grammar and punctuation
  5. Pride yourself on the quality of your correspondence
