Cheryl Watkins

A distance learning course studentI thought the course was great. The tutorial support was good, assignments were marked promptly and advice was forthcoming if required.

The course gave me an introduction to the world of proofreading and copyediting which is exactly what I wanted. I liked the ease with which I could download the learning material and the fact that the course was divided into relatively short sections.

I learned about the role of the proofreader and the numerous areas in which this expertise is required. I learned that, despite not having studied or taken exams for a long time, I am still able to do it successfully! It has given me the confidence to embark on some freelance work and maybe to take another course to further develop my skills.
