 Report Writing

Report Writing Training Course 

One day workshop

Overview

Managers often have to make major decisions in consultation with shareholders, colleagues, other agencies and their customers. A report is frequently the foundation for those decisions, and yet many people struggle to write them well.  The results are often long-winded, densely written and confusing; or short, terse documents which lack detail and recommendations.  This course helps delegates to write a report that is easily readable, well laid-out with the relevant information, and which presents the choices to the reader clearly and succinctly.

What you will learn:

  • Purposes and styles of report
  • Problems of written communication
  • Knowing your ‘audience’
  • Gathering facts and information, and ‘pruning’
  • Report structure
  • Report layout
  • Style of writing
  • Use of language (plain English)
  • Tone
  • Passive and active voice
  • How to command interest and persuade

Who should attend

Anyone who has to write a report for their workplace

Report Writing for the Public Sector Course

We also offer a course covering all types of report normally used in public sector work, including reports to committee.  The trainer will adapt the examples used to suit the ‘house style’ of the organisation.  The day is run as a workshop, where delegates put the training into practice on a report they currently need to write for work.
