Introduction to Editorial Skills: Copy-Editing and Proofreading with Sarah Sodhi
Spring 2016 - this course has now passed.
In association with the PUBLISHING TRAINING CENTRE, LONDON
For the very first time, the PTC and IWC are offering new editors the opportunity to learn proofreading and copy-editing skills – on-screen and on paper – in tandem. This course offers a unique three-step blended learning approach that combines self-study, a two-day classroom group course, and assessment. Learn how to use the key skills of copy-editing and proofreading on various different types of content, understand how different methods of working impact editorial workflow and appreciate how the roles of copy-editor and proofreader fit within today's publishing process.
This course contributes to PUB 14 and PUB 19 of the Book & Journal Publishing National Occupational Standards. This is also the first PTC open course to offer PQB certification.
