A Clerk’s role includes a great deal of time spent on writing minutes, letters and reports, but each of these documents has a different style.
We'll aim to answer the following questions: 
What headings and layout should I use to engage the reader?  
How can I improve my report style to look more professional? 
How much background information should I include?  
Are my reports too detailed?
This course also covers writing a report which you may want to release as a story or announcement. 


This course is recommended for all clerks and administrative assistants who write reports to their councils.
