Training for SaLTs and Specialist Teachers: Elklan Total Training Package for Post 16s

Elklan have developed a highly successful accredited ten week course for Post 16s practitioners,Speech and Language Support for Post 16s. In the light of the proposed changes to the SEN code this course has never been more apposite. As so few SaLT’s work in the field we are relaxing the criteria that you have to be a SaLT to be a trainer. Specialist FE tutors and teachers are therefore invited to attend a three day training course, complete the QuAT and be ready to roll out this essential training in September.

How can I become a licensed tutor?

When you attend this Elklan Total Training Package (TTP) you will be given everything you need to teach the course.

The TTP will cover all the content of the course, and you will receive information on:

  • How Elklan works
  • How to deliver a course that is externally quality assured and accredited by an OfQual regulated national Awarding Orgnisation
  • How to assess learners' work
What do SaLT trainees say about our TTPs?

If you are an SaLT no more training is required to teach the other programmes! Education colleagues may be able to teach other course without a SaLT tutor, see co-tutor policy for more information.

On-going support

As an Elklan tutor, you enter into a large network of others who are all seeking to fulfil the same aims as you in meeting the needs of children with Speech, Language and Communication Needs (SLCN). You will receive ongoing support and advice from Elklan who will answer your queries about delivering courses.

Training with others

Elklan supports collaborative practice and is keen to promote SaLTs and specialist teachers training together. However we are aware that this is not always possible so many SaLTs train on their own and we are currently enabling specialist teachers who meet certain criteria to train in isolation. The following downloads will give more information on the requirements and procedure.
