Communication Champion Training
As part of a joint delivery model, the NHS Paediatric Speech and Language Therapy are promoting an integrated, collaborative approach to developing capability and capacity in the schools workforce to support children and young people with Speech, Language and Communication Needs.
Each school will create a ‘Communication Champion Team’ by sending up to three members of staff (SENCo, Teacher and Teaching Assistant) to attend either an Elklan training course (Central Bedfordshire and Luton) or a Talking Success course (Bedford Borough). These courses are running throughout 2022; please see our website for details on how to book your place. https://childspeechbedfordshire.nhs.uk/training/
So far we have trained:
- 46 schools in Bedford Borough (109 staff)
- 28 schools in Central Bedfordshire (75 staff)
- 22 schools in Luton (55 staff)
That’s 239 Communication Champions across Bedfordshire & Luton!
