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".

Plain English Webinars

Our popular open training courses have been put on hold due to Covid-19 restrictions. Instead, due to a large number of requests from clients, we are currently developing a series of plain English webinars.

These will follow the same lines as our in-house training courses and can be accessed as a joint Microsoft Teams event, or as individual video recording..

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’ve had rave reviews from all the staff who have worked with Shirley. It’s so easy to get caught up in the world of jargon and public sector gobbledygook and too often we forget about the people on the receiving end of what we’re writing. Shirley’s really helped us to think more about what we write and the tone we use."
