Tracy Ellis

A distance learning course studentI enrolled to broaden my skills, so that I can have a better chance at a career once the children are in full time education. I also wanted to find a skill and career that I could do from home.

I was very pleased with the course. I learnt a lot from it and gained lots of knowledge.

My tutor Rachel was amazing. She would mark my work very quickly. She also had a lot of advice and help to give.

The content was very varied. There was a lot of information to take in and learn, but it was all set out in a way that was easy to comprehend.

I learnt the difference between proofreading and copy editing. I also learnt that there is a lot more to proofreading than just spotting spelling mistakes, which is what I naively thought before starting the course. I have learnt all the basic knowledge needed and the legal side of editing.
