Communication Friendly Settings (CFSe)

At Elklan, we understand the benefits of equipping all those who work in your setting with the tools they need to support children and young people's ability to understand and communicate with adults and their peers.

That's why we've designed Elklan Communication Friendly Setting (CFSe) accreditation that gives you all the information and support to train ALL staff in your setting. You can achieve this by rolling out Communication Counts, a course written by us and delivered by you. You will demonstrate how key strategies have been embedded across your setting by completing a learning log accredited at level 4.

Accredited CFSe status can be achieved in one year and renewed after three years. It is the most cost-effective strategy available for building capacity to support all pupils' communication skills across your whole staff team.

The CFSe programme you complete will be governed by the age of the children and young people in your setting, or the conditions with which they predominantly present.

Explore the different options to determine which is the best fit for you and your team and find out how to get started:

Commission training

Elklan works by training local speech and language therapists (SaLT) and specialist teachers to work collaboratively together to train the wider workforce in their locality. Where collaborative working is unavailable, the SaLT delivers the courses on her own.

Using local tutors ensures that the training supports the work of the local SaLT service and ensures continuity between what is taught and service delivery. It encourages the development of local networks and builds the relationship between the schools and the specialist advisory services.

Where a local Elklan tutor is unavailable, Elklan can supply a tutor to teach the courses. They can train your staff on the full range of Elklan externally accredited training courses as well as providing inset days and twilight sessions.

A minimum of 10 participants is required to run a course. This can be staff from one setting or across several settings within an area. To discuss bespoke inset training for your setting, please contact us.

We welcome enquiries from Academy Chains and groups of schools. Please contact us to arrange training.
