Training courses

CIEP courses cater for editors with all levels of experience, from beginners to established professionals who need to update and extend their existing skills. Our training covers a wide range of subject matter across different formats and our courses have all been designed by editorial professionals, many of whom also support students as CIEP tutors.

Most of our courses are delivered in an e-learning format, meaning you can work through the course content at your own pace and in your own time. If you prefer learning with others and having the opportunity to ask questions during live sessions with a tutor, you might want to have a look at our upcoming virtual learning courses

What have previous students and delegates said about CIEP training?

A very useful and informative course. The study notes and other resources were clear and concise, and the exercises were interesting and challenging, without being impossibly difficult for beginners!  I would definitely recommend it in future.

I really enjoyed this course, particularly the virtual learning format. Claire's expertise shone through, and I really liked how practical the webinars were. It was wonderful to be able to connect with other editors with similar goals.
