Being the daughter of a journalist I am dismayed at the number of errors I spot in newspapers, periodicals, magazines etc. So I looked to enrol on a proofreading course.

The course was excellent. Very self-explanatory. I now feel confident to seek employment in this field.

The course was varied and challenging and gave a comprehensive overview of all aspects of travel journalism. It’s definitely given me the confidence to get writing and not be afraid to approach and pitch my work.

The marked assignments were always returned promptly with constructive feedback. The content was good quality and thorough.

It was really helpful to have the option to ask questions about the assignments. I always got a prompt reply. The feedback was constructive and my writing improved as a result. The lessons were clear but comprehensive and had lots of relevant information.

I was looking to supplement my income and have always enjoyed proofreading, so I looked for a course. I wanted a portable job as I tend to travel a lot.

I enjoyed the course much more than anticipated. There was wonderful support with a quick turn-around for messages and grading. The content was very thorough.

I learned not only how to how to improve the website for our school. I also learned how to continue to ask questions and find the answers online. Enabling me to become an ongoing, autonomous online learner is the most important contribution that this course has made to my life.

Honestly, I cannot think of any way to make this exceptional learning experience better than it was for me.

This was a very thorough course covering a lot of bases. Very pleased! My tutor, Justine, has been incredible. I was given so much encouragement and constructive feedback which really boosted my confidence.

Lesley Mager: self-publishing course

I had no idea how to get my book published and this course took me to a finished product. I learnt the excitement and the sheer joy when you see your own book for sale on Amazon. Elation is the only way to describe it. Jennie Harborth, my tutor, was encouraging and supportive and her expertise was greatly needed. Problems were sorted and I am now a published author thanks to her and this course.

The course gave me a lot of information about the technicalities of proofreading and useful advice for future work in this area, which is what I wanted.

The course content was thorough and useful. The lessons were all well-structured and of a suitable length. I found it very useful.

I wanted to change my career path. My expectations were highly exceeded! The support was fantastic. The content was easy to understand and enlightening.

I learnt the ins and outs of proofreading and the most effective way of editing.

The course fully met my expectations, in teaching me the knowledge, skills and confidence needed to work freelance. My tutor was very friendly and approachable, and her tone was always supportive and encouraging.

My interest has deepened and I now know for certain that this is what I want to do.

I've done some online training for my professional development as a teacher and while pleased overall with those trainings, I often found some of the work less than engaging or somewhat contrived. Not the case with this copywriting course. Really impressed with the quality of this course.

The tutor’s expertise was clear from the start because of the detailed feedback she gave.

The course covered ALL relevant areas in full. Compared to other courses available, this one is very much up to date and relevant.

I particularly enjoyed having a mentor, together with the additional material provided in the modules which linked to other useful websites.

I'm a published author but I also have a seasonal day job. The course met every expectation incredibly well.

The feedback I received was helpful and my tutor was always fast to respond.

I now feel confident that I can accept work to edit and proofread novels, which is exactly what I hoped for.

I wanted to gain more knowledge and receive a qualification for what I do. It was very good - made you think deeper into the assignments.

I learned about assessing the entire marketing area rather than just focussing on a post.

The course was very thorough and easily accessible. Excellent lessons - explained easily to understand, concise, and at a pace I could manage.

The tutorial support was very good! Always a quick turnaround with marking and always there to answer queries and questions. It was all really good.

The course was thorough and gave plenty of extra tips and information to help me with the studying.

The tutorial support was excellent, with encouragement and helpful advice for each assignment.

I enrolled to help improve my writing and to have something to put on my CV to show that I am working on making myself better.

It really helped - well rounded and great information. My tutor Mitch Larney was great.
