Reports are the backbone of organisational writing. Most of us will need to write them at some point in our careers.

What’s the secret to a great report? What writing strategies can you employ so that your report is easy to digest and engaging?

This training will help refine your report writing skills, turning your narrative into an effective tool for sharing information and presenting solutions.

This 2½ hour workshop will help you to understand the essential elements of writing a report that conveys your message clearly, concisely and effectively. In the process, you will:

  • explore the role of storytelling in reports
  • formulate a structured approach to report writing
  • build skills in selecting and organising relevant information
  • and appreciate the importance of editing and proofreading.

Through writing exercises and discussion, you will learn how to organise information and approach the different stages of producing a report from initial ideas to final draft.

Who should attend?

Whether you’re a staff member or a volunteer, this training will help you with report writing and generally improve your written skills.

Please note this training is aimed at voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations and groups based in North Yorkshire or delivering services within North Yorkshire.
