Available courses

Our courses will all take place online for the foreseeable future. Most are open to non-members. We add to our programme throughout the year so sign up for our Training newsletter to find out about new courses – and special offers.

As well as our own courses, we’ve partnered with Harper Macleod for a programme of free legal webinars, BIC who offer some places free or at preferential rates to our members, and CIEP who accredit relevant editorial courses with CIEP upgrade points. We also commissioned marketing courses from BookMachine that our members attended at special low rates.

If you have any suggestions for or enquiries about our training courses, talks etc, please email our Training and Information Manager.
