Training

On editandtrain courses our participants 'learn by doing'.

Training courses customised to the needs of editors and publishers

Our experiential learning approach mirrors real-life situations in the working environment as closely as possible in order to maximise knowledge and skills transfer, and learning outcomes generally.

We offer a programme of short, hands-on training courses aimed at giving prospective practitioners access to the publishing industry and private clients. Our courses also provide bridging between academic courses and the real world of publishing. They’re an excellent way for employees in the book, magazine and journal publishing sectors to acquire the formal skills needed for promotion into editorial and publishing services positions.
