Essential Skills Definition Review

Review of definition for Writing

HRSDC would like to change the definition of Writing to:

"Writing skills are those needed to compose meaningful text of sentence length or longer, communicating ideas, messages and information in understandable words and language for a variety of audiences.

In a work context, writing skills may refer to the ability to write notes to co-workers, supervisors or staff, log book entries, or record statements for accident investigations. Examples of written texts may also include emails, letters, instructions, brochures, articles, reports, manuals, and legislation.

What are your thoughts and comments about this change?
