dates

Use the order: day month year. Punctuation is unnecessary. Don't use 'th', 'st', 'nd'.

 

For example
The new programme will be launched on Monday 12 April 2013.

 

Write the year in full, eg. 2013 not '13. For periods of more than a year, write 2012­-13 (not 2012-2013).

 

delegates

Use the word ‘students’ instead when referring to those participating in a training course. ‘Delegates’ is fine to use when referring to conference attendees.

 

division

All St John Ambulance divisions are units, but not all units are divisions. Use 'unit' if you are not sure.
