Learn to proofread and copy-edit with Chapterhouse
Fully certificated courses
Staffed by publishing professionals
Train to do a job you’ll love
Chapterhouse – training you to a professional standard
Our correspondence courses have manuals with lots of exercises and model answers for self-assessment, and additional free exercises can be sent in for detailed marking and feedback by our tutors. Chapterhouse offers two different correspondence courses: the Proofreader Plus Course covers proofreading, and the Proofreading and Editorial Skills Course deals with both proofreading and copy-editing. Chapterhouse correspondence students have up to a year to complete the course, so you can work from home, at your own pace.
There is no ‘average’ student: no typical age, job, background or gender. Some of our students are highly educated. Others left school at sixteen. Some are scientists. Others write novels. Many want to start a freelance career earning money from home. Others want to enhance their existing job prospects or enrich their language skills.
With Chapterhouse, you are in safe and trusted hands

The publishing industry respects our former students
We love to hear good news from our students!
I was able to leave teaching last summer and have supported myself since then through proofreading… I am thoroughly enjoying the work and my new lifestyle… thank you so much.
I have been able to inform a well-known company in Germany of my success and as a result am now contracted to them as a proofreader. You were right about Chapterhouse being ‘well respected in the UK and internationally’.
