Enhance your Book Production Skills - Proactive Production Training Workshop
Course detail

This popular one day course will help you build your book production knowledge, increase your effectiveness and help you to avoid costly mistakes.  In one action packed day we will introduce you to a wide range of production issues and give you the tools and terminology to resolve problems swiftly. The course has recently been updated to make it even more interactive, interspersed with samples and practical exercises. This is a course for production staff with experience of book production processes - a minimum of 2 years is recommended.

Anyone working in book production knows that the process involves lots of detail and that there are plenty of opportunities for misunderstandings along the way.   By focussing on what can go wrong from design stages through to delivery, you will learn the checks and measures to put in place to help avoid mistakes turning into disasters.

Who is the course aimed at?
Anyone working in book production with a couple of years of production experience or design with some experience of the book production process.
