The Human Resources Office, in collaboration with the Department of English, Faculty of Arts, organised a short introductory training course in ‘Written Communication Skills’. The course was aimed at all clerks and executive officers within the University who work in administration, faculties, institutes and centres. The sessions were held for a total of 157 participants between 25th April and 18th May 2007.

Mr Mario Aquilina, the course tutor, conducted a total of eight sessions.  Mr Aquilina made participants aware of the importance of effective written communication skills and provided them with an overview of some essential features of writing skills for administrative purposes.
