Thoroughly enjoyed. Loved the 'online' experience. I have never undertaken a course online before and I was so pleased everybody made it such an easy experience for me. The course itself was informative, and well organised. I'm looking forward to further developing my knowledge and skills when I begin another course, Supporting Verbal Pupils with ASD, this week

Speech and language was an area I had identified as a weakness and not knowing much about. This course has given me the knowledge and understanding of why things are done so it sticks in my head more and is an active part of my practice now as well as making me realise that I did know some bits and some of what was suggested in the course I was already doing but didn't realise I was doing it or it was the right thing to be doing.

The course has been a massive help in giving me tools and strategies to help individuals. It's given me the confidence to try things too.

I have thoroughly enjoyed learning new strategies and useful information from this course.

This was a fantastic course. Entirely relevant to the training needs of the school staff. Thought provoking and inspiring.

Communication Friendly Settings (CFS)
Speech and Language Support for Pupils with SLD is an essential first step for your school to achieve Communication Friendly Setting status. If you are a TA, you need to complete the level 3 qualification; if you are a teacher, then you can access the non-accredited e-learning sessions, which will prepare you to complete a level 4 learning log at the next stage.
These courses are ideally suited for you if you have completed an eight- or ten-session core course and wish to take your learning further.
