Proofreading and Writing Training
Available anywhere across Australia including Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Canberra, Melbourne, Parramatta, Geelong, Gold Coast.
In this busy world we live in, each and every word written down by anyone with an idea, or story, or transaction is put under immense scrutiny. You could be filing an application letter for a job, or you could be the CEO of a large multinational company making a correspondence with another equally large conglomerate for a business deal or merger, and both of your submitted documents will be sifted through and taken apart by prying eyes trying to see whatever flaw or ambiguity is present. Should it fail to pass scrutiny, you can consider the application or merger disregarded before it even begins.
Proofreading helps check on and correct any potential mistakes found in the raw products. Proofreaders and writers fulfill this great unsung role of ensuring that their peers’ materials are cohesively written and left with as few glaring errors as possible in order to pass the scrutiny of others.
Surprisingly, especially in this digital age of mass media and social networks, the proofreader and writer’s task has become even more popular than in the age of traditional print. They play an indispensable role in any business. To that end, Paramount Training and Development offers a course for learners specifically to meet this constant demand for proof readers and writers in the field of business.
Now, more than ever, the proofreader and writer’s marks can be found anywhere and everywhere. The adverts you see on the way to work, the words you read on your morning papers, the cute little article you saw on one of those websites you like to browse, to the script of that cheesy soap opera, and even in the words of the commercial that they decided to blast in your face immediately after the soap opera went to commercial break. If it feels crisp and well-written, chances are you have a writer and a proofreader to thank for that.
In the world of business where everything is at a knife-edge, the proofreader and writer are even more indispensable’ as in this world of precise language and pinpoint statements where one simple mistake can be the difference between a secure future, and instability for an uncertain period of time. Paramount Training and Development is well aware of this and is willing to assist potential learners how to perform well in this job role, and be prepared to lend a fine-tuned hand to help secure skills in this area.
Teach learners the fundamentals of language
As this course is aimed at instructing learners in proofreading and writing, learners will be taught to learn the relevant, key fundamentals of the English language that will be constantly encountered in their field or profession. Syntactic structure, word meaning and placement placement, lexical knowledge, all of these need to be taken into account when correcting even basic texts, let alone more complicated material. The proofreader and writer both need a firm grip in these core fundamentals to succeed.
Be aware of the different types of language they may encounter
Regardless of where they end up, the many fields that a proofreader and writer can end up in can be quite different from one another. Terms and jargon used by people in the business world will be vastly different from the terms and jargon used by the medical world, the world of advertising, or even the world of the law firm. Not to mention the differences between businesses themselves; as words and terms with a specific meaning in a business centered on food and catering can be completely different from the words and terms used in a business centered on the production of textiles. The proofreader and writer under our guidance will be well are of these subtle differences long before they finish our program, so no matter where they are in their roles they already possess some understanding of what their particular employer means in the text they will process.
Promote speed and efficiency in the profession
Proofreaders and writers are almost always under constant strain from limited deadlines and lengthy materials that need to be edited, watered down, or otherwise perfected and be fit for usage or consumption for their employer or other consumers. To this end, learners will be taught techniques and systems that promote high fidelity to their original texts and maximum efficiency in their work, allowing them to fulfill the immense demands of their employers without sacrificing quality of work.
Encourage Maverick thinking
Proofreaders and writers, depending on the strictness of their employer, have a chance to improve or enhance their employer’s original work and make it more insightful, impactful, or at the very least more interesting to read. Our training course offers materials and systems that help promote creativity within our learners with the intended goal of expanding their vocabulary, be more creative with their work, and generally expand their capacity to improve and enhance their future employers’ material beyond simply correcting their grammatical mistakes and rewriting their ambiguous statements.
Summary of Proof Reading and Writing
The job of the proofreader and writer is very much behind the scenes. They take the raw material of their superiors or employers and go through it with a fine-toothed comb, analyse their mistakes and see the errors that make their statements loose meaning or impact, and then to the best of their ability adjust, rewrite, and file down the errors and mistakes until they have something polished and of higher quality worthy of greater scrutiny by a greater audience, while still retaining the intended meaning and message that their employer or superior wished to convey.
