COURSE OUTCOMES

This practical course covers three main themes:

  • Professional Writing Skills
  • Reporting Skills / Report Writing
  • Proposal Writing

This course will teach you to create reports that lead to action and support good project decision-making. You will learn a process for reporting that will reduce wasted time and deadline stress and lead to writing that has a more significant impact.

Over five days, you will learn how to:

  • Set reporting objectives and select the most appropriate data collection methods
  • Analyse data and draw conclusions / identify lessons learned
  • Plan your writing around the report’s objectives and your reader’s needs
  • Organise your ideas in a logical, persuasive way
  • Communicate clearly and in a way that keeps your readers interested and alert

Through the Proposal Writing modules, you will learn how to plan, draft and edit a persuasive proposal that:

  • Identifies and describes the problem to be solved – one that aligns with your donor’s area of interest
  • Sets out a straight-forward solution
  • Convinces donors you can deliver

As a result, your proposals will be well-organised, clear and persuasive - contributing to better relations with donors and increased donor support.
