Becoming an Elklan Communication Friendly Setting - Secondary
Elklan Communication Friendly Setting (CFSe) accreditation is awarded to settings that have trained and support all their staff in communication and language development. They will also have shown evidence of embedding this knowledge in targeted interventions and through the implementation of a Communication Policy. Accreditation can be achieved in one year and can be renewed after three years. It is the most cost effective strategy available for whole-setting capacity building in communication.
Becoming a CFSe involves three, elements each of which can be commissioned separately:
- Training Teaching Assistants
- Training the whole setting staff through trained Lead Communication Practitioners
- An audit of the embedding of practices and policies in the setting
