This report by The Communication Trust presents the findings of our survey with more than 1200 members of the children and young people's workforce, where we asked about their experiences of professional development in speech, language and communication (SLC). Respondents were nearly unanimous in recognising the importance of SLC, but there were very significant gaps in their training in this area. The report also provides recommendations around improving the workforce's access to training.
The SLCF is a free online CPD tool from The Communication Trust, which sets out the skills and knowledge the workforce needs to support children and young people’s speech, language and communication. Individuals and groups can use the SLCF to evaluate their skills and highlight their learning needs, with tailored training and resource suggestions to support development.
