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

Shirley Carnegie

SCPR LTD has undergone a major review of its service provision to meet the changing needs of clients in a modern workplace. SCPR LTD is now operating under a new name - Shirley Carnegie -  to deliver online Plain English and Inclusive Communications training remotely via Microsoft Teams. Clients continue to enjoy the benefits of direct interaction with the trainer, but in a relaxed and convenient setting. The courses are already receiving excellent feedback from delegates.

Plain English Training

Shirley Carnegie has been running in-house and open plain English training and editing services for many years. The new online courses continue to help you meet the needs of a diverse target audience, inluding writing for people with English as a second language, young and older people and people who may have a visual impairment. The courses also cover common problems, such using long words, long and complex sentences and pompous language. They also help you clarify your message by using punctuation correctly.    

The Training Courses

Each course lasts for up to three hours and costs £600 for up to twelve (12) delegates. The optimum number of people on each course is 12, but courses can accommodate up to 16 delegates where necessary. The cost for each extra person is £50.  Shirley Carnegie will share a PowerPoint presentation during the training and everyone will receive a copy of the basic course content after the session. 

Inclusive Communications

Alongside the focus on plain English, the new Inclusive Communications training course is delivered via Microsoft Teams by Shirley Carnegie - a well-known communications professional. The Inclusive Communications course includes training in how to avoid common mistakes, such as using idiom or irony that may confuse people with English as a second language. The course also embraces inclusive language such as using gender-neutral pronouns and avoiding terms that promote gender stereotypes.
