Talk Boost Tutor Training Overview

The Talk Boost KS1 Tutor Licensee Training course is delivered over one day and lasts for five hours.

It covers the background to the development and the evaluation of Talk Boost KS1, the structure of the Talk Boost KS1 intervention and supporting materials and an overview of the training course for teachers and teaching assistants. Subsequently, Tutors will need to familiarise themselves with the materials and manuals and with the training materials. They will need to spend some time before running each training course in familiarisation with the materials and preparation of the activities.

Licensed Tutor training also includes an overview of adult learning approaches and information about the marketing and licensing of I CAN products.

Training is held at I CAN central office in central London. Training can be arranged in your local area if you can arrange a cohort of six who meet the Talk Boost KS1 tutor criteria.
