Pre-order Items

Pre-order resources will either have a single dispatch date or a date range. Where there is a date range:
  • The earlier date is the best-case scenario – the date by which we aim to dispatch the resource to you, if the resource sails through quality and similar checks.
  • The later date is given to indicate the latest date by which you should expect the resource to be dispatched.

These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

The Proofreading Training Pack

To reach those top marks for AQA Creative Writing, your students will need to proofread and copy-edit their own work to a high standard. Even the best writers can make errors. For essential activities and advice on proofreading, try out this new Training Pack, developed in conjunction with The Proofreading Agency.

It includes:
  • Comprehensive notes with advice on the proof-reader’s job
  • 18 carefully selected worksheets with advice, tips and practice exercises covering capitalisation, commas, semi-colons, common mistakes, parentheses, hyphens, subject-verb agreement, dangling participles, American spellings, homophones and many more!
  • Answers to all exercises & tests (with exemplar marking up)
  • Two proofreading tests to monitor your progress

Plus, for those who would consider a future career in proofreading, a guide to the BS 5261C: 2005 proofreading symbols!

Easy to use with good explanations and loads of practice exercises. A good introduction to proofreading. S Balliston-Thicke, Proof-reader and Independent Reviewer
