Understanding Book Publishing
This online course was created to give you a comprehensive introduction to the book publishing industry, and is designed to provide certificated evidence of industry knowledge and commitment.
It is based around the text of the book Inside Book Publishing (Giles Clark and Angus Phillips, 4th Edition), which provides a concise yet thorough grounding in the business of publishing, from author contract to book shelf. You will receive a copy of the book when you enrol for the course.
You will need to read Inside Book Publishing and will then be guided through a number of exercises and activities that are designed to check your understanding of the issues covered. Finally, you will be asked to complete an assignment, which will be marked by an experienced tutor. The assignment will be graded and we will send you a certificate containing the pass mark.
The course will give you a head start in gaining valuable industry knowledge and will give you a certificate to show potential employers that you have successfully completed the programme and therefore have a good understanding of all aspects of the publishing industry. You can enrol online at any time by visiting: www.train4publishing.co.uk
The Publishing Training Centre is, for many, the first port of call for their professional in-service training. Because of our unique position we are regularly asked about routes into publishing as a career, but until now we have been able to offer little except advice. Now this new online course, coupled with one written assignment, is designed to provide certificated evidence of industry knowledge and commitment. Completion and certification does not guarantee success with your applications or wish for promotion, but will be a clear indication of your skill, dedication and ability to progress with your chosen career.
