Our training philosophy
Our approach to training differs from traditional methods. We believe in observing the setting to personalise the training, using real life examples including case studies, video footage and curriculum/activity ideas. We also like to encourage personal involvement from the participants to support active learning, and spend time discussing real life events from the setting. In addition, we support treatment with follow-up coaching sessions and make our training accessible to staff teams, by offering twilight sessions, evening, weekend and online training.
The training process
We offer a wide range of training through our roster of highly qualified speech and language professionals and associated therapists. This means we can deliver a variety of specific expertise and experience including all of the latest approaches and information, in a cost-effective package which can be tailored to your budget.
When we are asked to carry out training, a therapist from our team will discuss the skills and training needs of the staff, and the daily routines and character of the client group with the settings co-ordinator. We will carry out an environmental observation of the setting and take video footage, where consent is given, to use within our training. Real life examples are essential to make the training meaningful and relevant to everyone taking part.
Finally, we will also arrange follow-up sessions within your setting. This allows for further problem solving and questions to be answered, which often crop up after the training has been delivered.

Online training offers enormous flexibility to parents, teachers and care staff. That’s why we regularly run an online training schedule available to anyone and which covers a range of topics above.
Online training can be a great way to teach members of the family – for example when learning to sign with a family member. It can also be very useful to schools and care settings, who want their staff to take a training module on a particular topic.
