About our facilitator

John Linnegar has been a teacher and trainer, and a setter of more tests and examinations than he cares to remember, during a career spanning 40+ years. He has also acted as an external marker and moderator for examinations set by the Western Cape Department of Education. With Cathy Robertson, he was a co-examiner of PEG’s inaugural accreditation test and also one of the markers. He was also an examiner and marker of the 2021 and 2022 accreditation tests.

About the workshop

The purpose of the webinar/workshop is to demonstrate how questions should be answered, what to do and what not to do, and to clarify how candidates can prepare themselves for the next accreditation test. The vehicle for achieving this purpose will be the questions on language/grammar and on structural, content, stylistic and copy editing in PEG’s 2020 test. It will be useful for those who intend participating to work through these questions beforehand, providing answers where possible, in order to derive maximum benefit from the test. Those who sat the 2020 test should bring their completed tests to the webinar/workshop to enable them to discover where they could have performed better.
