my Plain English Training Courses

"This program is a valuable initiative with considerable benefit to our staff, stakeholders and leaders." (Peter McKay, Deputy Commissioner, Public Service Commission, April 2016)

While writing is a critical aspect of all public service roles, most public servants struggle to write clearly and succinctly. The result is wasted time and effort for staff and senior managers in multiple reviews and continual re-writing.

  • small class sizes (maximum of 15 people)
  • short courses (half-day and full-day courses)
