We often take writing for granted – but it’s one of our most valuable tools.


Focusing on structure, purpose, conciseness and plain language, this programme will help you to write accurate, attention-grabbing documents. We’ll teach you practical skills and techniques that make it easy to engage your audience and get exactly the right message across.


Your role involves written communication in various forms, or if you would like to develop your professional writing skills.


  • Plan, draft and prepare written communications in a variety of formats
  • Adapt your writing style to reflect the nature of the document and its target audience
  • Present documentation for impact using plain language and appropriate tone
  • Review and proof-read communications to ensure quality and consistency


Staff will have the skills to write professional documents that are clear, reader-focused and engaging.


One day


Morag MacTaggart from Dunedin

In 2014 Morag was approached by a manager from one of Dunedin's larger companies. The company had a problem that was costing their organisation valuable time and money

"I can't understand what my team is saying. I seem to spend all my time seeking further information, proof-reading and editing. Can you help?"

Since then Morag has gone on to run workshops and courses for workplace writers from all backgrounds, levels of education and skill sets, from senior managers to staff that spend the majority of their day in the field.

With over twenty years' English teaching experience, Morag is an accomplished education professional. Her lively, no nonsense approach with plenty of laughter thrown in, breaks down barriers creating a constructive learning environment. From here, real skill building and most importantly, change can take place.
