Editors Victoria is Australia's largest association for professional editors.

Training

training-iconWe provide training on editing, industry software and business skills.

Editors Victoria provides professional development for editors to fill gaps in the skills they need to be an editor and to refresh their existing skills. Professional development helps editors improve their employability, their freelance businesses,  their efficiency and the quality of the services they provide.

Editors Victoria offers one-day, half-day and webinar courses from February to November each year in editing skills, technical skills, business skills and editing genres. We also offer courses to prepare members for the IPEd accreditation exam in relevant years and a small number of other courses.
