The Book Editing course is a highly popular course which has succeeded in providing an excellent base for the start of a career in publishing. The course is suitable for recent graduates, those changing career direction and those already in publishing and requiring refresher training.

The examination-based course is designed for those wishing to work in editorial and proofreading and those who work in books and related publishing.
