Course description: 


Primary Talk Licensed Tutor training is a one day course lasting approximately 5 hours. It will enable you to deliver both Primary Talk Supporting Communication and Primary Talk Enhancing Communication courses to primary school staff.

This Licensed Tutor training includes and exploration of the training materials and how best to deliver them in school together with an opportunity to consider how to use this to support whole school development in speech, language and communication in order to improve outcomes for all children, including those with speech, language and communication needs (SLCN).

As with all our licensee training, we will also provide an overview of what it means to be an I CAN licensee and the range of support you can expect from I CAN.

Primary Talk training is an evidence informed whole school training programme at universal (Supporting Communication) and targeted (Enhancing Communication) levels for staff working with children aged 5-11.

Primary Talk training can help schools to create an environment that develops the spoken language skills of all children, and ensures effective school based provision for children with SLCN. It improves staff knowledge and understanding of speech, language and communication and embeds learning through follow-up activities and a personal action plan.

Primary Talk training is aimed at teachers, teaching assistants, SENCOs and school staff who have an active role in the classroom and is offered at two levels.

Primary Talk – Enhancing Communication

Who is it for?

A course which builds on existing speech, language and communication knowledge and skills for those working with primary school children and also aims to develop skills to support children with SLCN.
