This MUST be embedded in the curriculum, as part of PGCE and delivered as CPD! This is a whole school approach and all teachers should follow this practice.

I have attended many courses in my 28 years in education. The Elklan course has given me the most practical strategies to support the young people I work with. I recommend the Elklan course to everyone!

This course has been fantastic and has made a huge impact on not only practice but subsequently the learning experience of my students
Roisin Concannon, 2023, re: Elklan Speech and Language Support for 11-16s
The course was great, I really enjoyed learning as part of a group over the 10 weeks sharing ideas and experiences as well as learning new skills that have already made a huge impact in my students ability to achieve independent learning. Would highly recommend.

I have really enjoyed this training and the benefits of delivering it to a child. I look forward to supporting many more children in the future.

I thought that the course was great and it has given me ideas and skills that I am keen to fully embed in my daily interactions with children and young people.

I have really enjoyed this course and feel that I have gained a lot from it. The Tuesday night sessions have been fun and informative. I think this has a lot to do with our tutor. I can't recommend the course enough
