Course Outline / Curriculum

The Stages of Report Writing

This session will introduce the four stages of report writing: investigating, planning, writing, and revising.

  • The First Stage – Investigating
    • The first step is to gather the information for your report. This session will give participants some guidelines to ensure that what they gather is accurate.
  • The Second Stage – Planning
    • Participants will learn how to plan a report based on information gathered during the first stage.
  • The Third Stage – Writing 
    • Participants will practice writing a draft and check that their writing is clear, concise, complete, and correct.
  • The Fourth Stage – Revising
    • In this session, participants will learn about the importance of revision, including spelling and grammar checks.

Using Headings

  • This session will provide a brief introduction to organizing a report.

Charts and Graphs

  • Next, participants will learn the right way to add charts and graphs to their report.

The Proposal

  • During this session, participants will learn how writing a proposal is different from writing a report. Participants will also review the ten steps to successful proposal writing.


  • This session will look at the finishing touches for a report, including steps in the persuasion process, how to design your message, and how to deal with tough questions.

Practical Application
