The great advantage of our proofreading course is that we teach two related, but separate, skills.

Students can specialise in either proofreading or copy editing, if they choose.

Alternatively, our proofreading course graduates can offer both skills to potential employers and clients.

For anyone unsure of the difference between proofreading and copy editing:

Copy editors work with raw text. They make changes to style, structure and length to ensure the copy is in the format required by the editor or publisher.

Proofreaders provide a final ‘quality check’ before the copy is submitted for publication or print. They highlight spelling mistakes, grammatical errors and anything else that may need correcting.

As we teach students both sets of skills, our accredited online proofreading course is a great choice for anyone looking to maximise their career options.
