This interactive online course will explore the crucial role of Communication and Language in the Early Years.
As a prime area of learning, we know that Communication and Language is a high priority for our young learners. This training course will provide practitioners with the opportunity to build confidence and further their knowledge and understanding of the different aspects of this prime area. The training course will enable participants to:
- learn practical ideas that can be implemented in their setting
- explore the role of the environment in supporting speech, language and communication
- investigate a range of resources that can be used to enhance planning and provision
- identify and support children with additional speech, language and communication needs
- develop an understanding of the importance of parental engagement
Throughout the session, time will be time given for discussion and for participants to reflect on their own practice and provision.
This course is aimed at NQTs, Early Career Teachers, EYFS Teachers and Practitioners, Teaching Assistants and those aiming to refresh their knowledge or build their confidence in supporting children’s communication and language development.
