Writing in plain English to parents and carers

26TEN's new course introduces plain English principles in a practical way. While aimed at teachers and school administrators, the course is useful for any group or individual who works with young people, including child and family centres, play groups, speech pathologists and sports administrators. 

The course can be done in your own time, on your own or with a group. The seven videos and worksheets lead you through each step in a practical way. Using plain English increases the chances that everyone will understand your message, including Tasmanian adults who have struggle with everyday reading and writing.
