Perfect Grammar and Punctuation

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 undermines their ability to communicate clearly and 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 one-day training 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.

Coronavirus Update

Due to current government guidelines we have temporarily closed our training centre in London. All of our staff are now working remotely, and all classroom training has been postponed until 29th May.

We have developed a fantastic range of interactive webinars delivered by our experienced facilitators, Live Online Learning. We understand that for many people this will be the first time that they have worked from home and so we have developed short 1.5-2 hour sessions to help you adjust to this new situation. You can see details of our IT Skills live online learning sessions here and our Personal Development sessions here – or we can adapt any of our classroom training into webinar format for you.

For the latest government guidance, please visit the gov.uk website.

We will continue to monitor the situation and will advise all clients if the situation changes.

If you have any questions or concerns, or would like to arrange some online training, our friendly team are available Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm. You can leave a message on 020 7375 7300 or email us at hello@happy.co.uk.
