Speech Language and Communication Needs Training for Early Years practitioners

I CAN EYSEND Partnership

As part of the EYSEND Partnership, I CAN is pleased to be offering training to early years SENCos, managers and early years practitioners to enable excellent support for SLCN in early years settings.

The training is provided at two levels – core (introductory) and in-depth (advanced).  You may choose to start with the core training and move to the in-depth, or if you have had previous SLCN training, you could move straight to the in-depth training. Full details of how to access both levels of training are described below.

Core (Introductory) Training Webcasts: This training consists of two pre-recorded webcast modules that you can view at a time to suit you; on your own or in small groups. The webcasts last 90 minutes each and include opportunities to reflect and consider application to your own early years setting.  There is a participant pack to download for each module which you can find below.

They will introduce you to Speech, Language and Communication Needs (SLCN) in the early years. They will help you take initial steps in exploring the impact of SLCN on young children and identify and support SLCN in your early years setting.

You can then book a follow-up live coaching webinar to help you implement what you have learnt.

Watch the module one and module two webcasts
