SCPR Limited - Plain English training and editing for the public and private sector


Hello and welcome to the SCPR website.

At SCPR, we’ve been providing plain English training and editing services to a wide range of public sector organisations since 1996. We pride ourselves on offering excellent services at value for money prices.
We've also worked with a number of high-profile clients from the private sector, including the construction, finance and IT industries.

We understand the complex needs and demands faced by public sector organisations. We also appreciate that you have to provide excellent services at value for money prices. This is what we do best as our clients will testify.

Plain English Training Courses

Our in-house plain English training courses can be held at your offices at a time to suit you. These courses are so popular that most clients ask us to run extra courses for other members of staff. We also offer half-day courses where time or budgets are limited.

The feedback from delegates for all our training courses is overwhelmingly positive, with Shirley Carnegie's knowledge and training skills consistently rated "excellent".

Open Training Courses

In addition to our in-house plain English training courses, we also hold regular one-day open training courses. The next sessions will take place in November 2019 at venues in Glasgow, Manchester and Birmingham.

These follow the same format and content of our popular in-house training courses.

Writing services

At SCPR, our editing services go way beyond the normal plain English revisions that you might expect to pay for. At no extra cost, we'll check grammar and spelling as well as suggesting other ways of saying something if we think it will make your document easier to understand.

We've worked on a wide variety of documents over the years, ranging from publicity leaflets for charities to large, complex reports and policy documents. Whatever the job, we always go above and beyond what's expected of us, at no extra cost, and without compromising our 100 percent track record for achieving deadlines.

We also offer a full copywriting service where we work to your brief. Shirley Carnegie is a renowned editor and technical writer and her ability to absorb complex information quickly and thoroughly has been proven time and again.

One common feature is the high level of satisfaction from clients who return to us on a regular basis assured of a great service.

At SCPR, we will always go above and beyond what's expected of us, without compromising our 100 percent track record for achieving deadlines.
