LEARN HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR WRITING SKILLS TO COMMUNICATE CLEARLY, EFFICIENTLY AND WITH IMPACT USING PLAIN ENGLISH PRINCIPLES.

Program overview

The Plain English movement was designed to cut through the confusing legalese of important documents in an effort to create clear and coherent communication using common, everyday language that is easily understood by the reader. Incorporating Plain English principles into your work will result in less writing time, shorter documents and enhanced readability.

Even if your role doesn’t require a lot of writing, how you come across is crucial to your credibility. The ability to write clearly, precisely, powerfully and persuasively is a key skill that enables you to summarise and present ideas, build relationships and gain commitment to action. It can also demonstrate your knowledge, confidence and professionalism.

This program uses your own writing examples to demonstrate the use of Plain English principles and persuasive writing techniques.
