Writing Reports And Proposals


This programme is intended for officers, managers, and other staff whose roles involve producing proposals and reports for their organisation.


By the end of this programme, the participants will be able to:

  • Prepare reports and proposals that inform, persuade, and provide information
  • Review your work so that it is clear, concise, complete, and correct
  • Apply these skills in real work applications


It is essential to understand how to write reports and proposals that get read. We write reports in a range of formats and a variety of purposes. Whether you need to report on a product analysis, inventory, feasibility studies, or something else, report writing is a skill you will use again and again.

Having a method to prepare these documents will help you be as efficient as possible with the task. This course will build on a solid base of writing skills to present information in formal, informal, and proposal styles.
