Where can this course take me?
Your Diploma in Proofreading and Copy Editing is the gateway to a career as a successful proofreader.
Having a qualification in proofreading makes the difference between being offered well-paid work or being rejected for every project or job you apply for.
Armed with the Diploma you can become an agency proofreader, receiving work from agencies and working on big projects for major organisations.
Alternatively, you can work as a self-employed proofreader - operating from the comfort of your own home for clients all over the world.
The internet lets you stay in constant contact with clients and you won't have to travel to an office each day.
You can work at any time of the day or night; and less time travelling means more time available to do the job you love!
As a qualified proofreader you'll be able to build up a portfolio of clients who will trust you and return to you time and time again with more work.
If you're just starting out, you may decide to seek an apprenticeship with an agency, or get work as a proofreading assistant.
There's a big demand for qualified proofreaders to check brochures, reports, websites and all kinds of translated content, plus students' and lecturers' material.
Some proofreaders decide to tackle any brief that comes their way, while others focus on a specific field such as essays or book publishing, and become known for their work.
Whatever your chosen path, your Diploma in Proofreading will allow you to achieve your dreams.
