Initial Teacher Training
Teachers have a crucial role in supporting children and young
people's communication. The Trust is working in partnership with
Teacher Training colleges to support people who are training to be
teachers - raising their awareness, knowledge and skills in
relation to speech, language and communication needs.
We have developed training and resources that support trainees
and highlight the importance of communication at school, provide
information about speech, language and communication needs and help
to highlight the role of teachers.
The Trust has developed a booklet Let's Talk About It,
and a suite of materials including information sheets, learning
activities and powerpoints, to support providers to embed speech,
language and communication, and speech, language and communication
needs (SLCN) into their courses.
