Elklan works by training local speech and language therapists (SaLT) and specialist teachers to work collaboratively together to train the wider workforce in their locality. Where collaborative working is unavailable, the SaLT delivers the courses on her own.
Using local tutors ensures that the training supports the work of the local SaLT service and ensures continuity between what is taught and service delivery. It encourages the development of local networks and builds the relationship between the schools and the specialist advisory services.
Where a local Elklan tutor is unavailable, Elklan can supply a tutor to teach the courses. They can train your staff on the full range of Elklan externally accredited training courses as well as providing inset days and twilight sessions.
A minimum of 10 participants is required to run a course. This can be staff from one setting or across several settings within an area. To discuss bespoke inset training for your setting, please contact us.
We welcome enquiries from Academy Chains and groups of schools. Please contact us to arrange training.
