Perfect Grammar and Punctuation (Live Online Learning)

Many staff writers have little grounding in grammar and punctuation, so it’s not surprising when they get it wrong in their letters and emails. This lack of expertise not only undermines their ability to communicate clearly, but also their job satisfaction. It can suggest a more general lack of expertise and can give a poor impression of the writer and the organisation they represent.

This course will make you more capable and confident by showing you how to write grammatically, punctuate correctly, and effectively structure and layout letters and emails.

This course will be delivered remotely via Zoom. Happy's Live Online Learning sessions are interactive webinars. The facilitator guides learners through the material, encouraging participation and interaction.

The Small Print

All learners will need to install Zoom on their machines. Full technical requirements are on the Zoom website. Your link will be included in your joining instructions once you have booked your place — if you haven't received this email then please contact our team.

Learners should log into the training session 10 minutes before the start time, to ensure that they have downloaded and set up Zoom correctly. The course will start precisely on time and it may not be possible to go back over material missed by late arrivals.

Your active participation is expected: everyone will be heard and seen throughout, just as they would be if we were in a room together. To be heard, hear and seen you will need a microphone, speakers and camera — if you have a modern laptop that’s all you will need. Remember, you’ll need a quiet place to call from and a decent internet connection is a must.

Please ensure you read our Terms and Conditions before booking for our payment terms and cancellation policy.

We want everyone to go away from our courses feeling as though they have learnt useful, practical skills that they can use straight away when they go back to work.

If you don’t feel that your training has been useful or if you are unhappy in any way, just get in touch with our Customer Services team within 30 days of the course. We will be happy to offer you additional support and training free of charge to help you to gain the skills you need, or if you’d prefer, a full refund.
