The qualification focuses on developing the role of TAs/LSAs/support staff working with pupils with SLCN difficulties.  The blended programme has been developed by Eastern Partnership UK and includes attendance at virtual workshop sessions.

Course Aims and Structure

This exciting initiative will enable participants to develop their knowledge and confidence in supporting children and young people with speech, language and communication needs and provide them with the opportunity to develop a range of practical skills to fulfil a school-based support role working with children and young people with SLCN. 

The qualification is suitable for teaching and support staff working in all phases of education; early years, primary, secondary and post-16.

The course can be offered via a blended pathway during a six-month period with online course materials accessible via laptop/tablet/phone and includes virtual face-to-face sessions. 
(please see Eastern Partnership website for further details and pricing)

Course Content

The course incorporates but is not limited to the following learning outcomes:

  • Investigate the roles and responsibilities of different professionals working in schools and settings to support children and young people with SLCN. This will include an exploration of how your own role contributes to the effectiveness of support. 
  • Typical speech, language and communication development and an understanding of the risk factors that can impact on this development.
  • Effective contributions to the early identification of speech, language and communication needs.
  • Knowledge of how to analyse the relationship between other areas of development and the impact of SLCN on learning and behaviour. 
  • Strategies for supporting children and young people with SLCN.
  • Developing appropriate techniques to engage children and young people in the support process and provide opportunities for them to develop their skills.
  • Opportunity to reflect on current practice in the light of your new learning through the completion of a small-scale project. 


You will be allocated an online Learning Outcomes Assessor who will support you to complete your portfolio of evidence and gain the right level of knowledge and practical skills from the course. 

To achieve the learning outcomes for the course, you will submit learning journal entries and assessment tasks linked to each chapter using the assessment platform. 

Benefit to your Organisation

  • Building the capacity of staff to better support children and young people with SLCN in your school
  • Impacting positively on pupil outcomes and progress
  • Helping improve independent learning behaviours and self-regulation of children who have both short/longer term difficulties with their speech, language and communication.

Entry Requirements

The course is open to those who are:

  • Working in a support role in a school or setting across the phases: early years, nursery and primary
  • Building a portfolio of Level 4 SEND related qualifications

Throughout the course participants will be asked to reflect on their own practise and look at ways that they could improve. They will build up a portfolio of evidence that can be accredited. For this reason it is a very specific programme that can lead to change in your school. The course also gives senior leaders in the school an opportunity to audit the provision and practise in school and to consider whether there is a communication friendly environment for all children.
