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.

Take a look around our site and see if you agree.

Plain English Training Courses

Our in-house plain English training courses follow Government Covid-19 guidelines for social distancing. They can be held at your offices at a time to suit you. These courses are so popular that many 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".

Writing services

Our editing services provide the complete package. At no extra cost, we check grammar and spelling as well as suggesting other ways of saying something if we think it makes your document easier to read.

Whatever the job, we always go above and beyond what's expected of us 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.

"We engaged SCPR for a client primary school prospectus. Meeting the Headteacher at the school to discuss the feel of the brochure before we started was very helpful in guiding the direction of the design concept and copy. Shirley did an excellent job and it was a joy to work with her. We will definitely be engaging Shirley for future projects."
