Course Outline

Report writing is an essential document that is required in the workplace. Reports that follow different formats can be frustrating and reading reports can also be very time-consuming.

People reading your report don't usually have a lot of time. Very few, if any, will read every word of your report from start to finish. However, using a clear, standard format allows readers to find the information they need quickly and easily - and skip what they don't need. This workshop will provide you with a standard format and practical hints and tips that will ensure your reports are effective.
