Free professional development for HVs on speech, language and communication

18th October 2018

Are you a health visitor looking for free professional development in speech language and communication? If so, look no further. The Communication Trust’s programme Early Voices offers a unique opportunity to health visitors to access free professional development and training to increase their knowledge in early speech language and communication development in order to achieve higher impact with the families that they work with.

This is recruitment for the second cohort of Communication Leaders – following the first cohort earlier this year.

The Early Voices programme seeks to recruit health visitors to take on the role of ‘Communication Leader’ in their locality. Communication Leaders will receive a fully-funded place on a Level 3 Award in speech, language and communication, and additional training from The Communication Trust (TCT).

TCT training will outline the expected levels of early speech language and communication development, advice on how to share this information and evidence-based strategies with parents, and where to signpost parents to access further support. To broaden the reach of this knowledge, Communication Leaders will cascade their learning via two TCT-designed sessions to their local early years networks.
