I’m Shirley Carnegie and I've been providing plain English training and editing services to public and private sector clients for many years. Some of you may know me through SCPR LTD, the company I set up in 1996. 

SCPR LTD is now trading as “Shirley Carnegie” to deliver training in Plain English and NEC4 Communications remotely using Microsoft Teams. This allows clients to continue to enjoy the benefits of direct interaction with me, but in a convenient setting of their choice. 


My standard course helps clients meet the needs of various target audiences, including members of diverse communities, young and older people and people who may be visually impaired. It also tackles common problems, such as long words, long and complex sentences and pompous language. 

I also provide specialist training and editing services to the construction industry. My NEC4 (New Engineering Contract) courses explain how you can apply plain English within the constraints of legal and technical language. 


I've been a professional writer, trainer and public speaker for more than twenty years. I'm also a qualified journalist and author. Click here to see my three novels.
