The Communication Trust’s new 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.
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.
Application deadline – 11 April 2018
