Report Writing Training Programme


Join ERF Skillnet and The Communications Clinic for this half day workshop – a training programme that will enable participants to write high quality business reports and documents in a consistent and repeatable manner.



The Workshop format:

  • Half-day writing skills webinar
  • Individual follow-up sessions for each participant with a consultant from The Communications Clinic.

In advance of the initial session, each participant will submit a sample of a report or other relevant document they have written (or will have to write soon). This will be carefully reviewed by the Communications Clinic, assessed and feedback provided for each participant.

**Please note that submission of a sample in advance is mandatory to ensure there are no delays during the remote programme.

During the actual workshop, participants will be asked to rewrite their writing samples based on learnings from the webinar. They would then be invited to participate in a 30 minute one-on-one follow-up session with a consultant from The Communications Clinic, to ensure the principles identified in the webinar were understood and applied.

At the end of this training, each participant will:

  • – Know how to identify and research different audiences’ interests, concerns and needs
  • – Understand the principles of effective communication
  • – Know what is important and necessary when taking notes
  • – Know where to access spelling and grammar checking resources
