Your Contribution

We can do a lot to help you, but we can’t do it all for you. In fact, the major contribution must come from you.

In addition to a love of the English language you should also enjoy reading, have an eye for detail, good powers of concentration and enough free time to be able to study the course thoroughly. You do not need to be especially gifted at writing or be an expert in the English Language. All you need is the ability to follow your tutor’s advice and have enthusiasm, perseverance and determination to do well. If you think this sounds like you, there’s no reason why you can’t enjoy a complete career change or the extra income generated from part-time freelance proofreading and copy editing.

So if you really want a career as a proofreader or copy editor and you are prepared to put in the time and effort required, then together we can help make your goal a reality.

Perfect Course
5 5
by Louise - February 2017

The perfect course for beginners looking to improve their skills in proofreading and editing. I learned a lot from this course. As well as all of the expected skills, it also covers the differences between America and English spellings, and the correct use of symbols to mark manuscripts for ammendments.

Great Course
5 5
by Louise - February 2017

A really good informative course that helped me to develop my writing skills, in a variety of ways. I really enjoyed both the fiction and non-fiction parts of the course. I feared the article writing at first, as I'm mainly a fiction writer. But, I must say the course really did help me to break through my fear of writing articles. Since then, I went on to write three review articles which were published into my local newspaper.
