about training

"The training courses at Publishing Scotland are extremely good value for money. The content is professionally prepared and relevant, the tutors knowledgeable and experienced, and booking and course administration is first-class and friendly. Having used many of these courses for several years, I can attest to the advantages they bring: we consider them a rite of passage for all new recruits, even experienced recruits, and invariably our people return with applicable skills and renewed enthusiasm for publishing."
