Our specialist courses are designed to strengthen the expertise and confidence of teachers , teaching assistants and support tutors in order to ensure the progress and achievement of children and adults with dyslexia and SpLD.
We also offer a range of other courses for professionals and parents who want to increase their understanding of dyslexia and evidence-based literacy teaching. You can download our latest training information flyer and find our list of current available courses by visiting our calendar of courses , you can also download our training courses guide here
We use a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) called Moodle. This is an open source software which we have developed to enable shared global access to all our students on a range of courses from the postgraduate course to the CPD programmes. The unique design of our e-learning means that students can not only access multimedia learning materials such as videos, podcasts and webinars, they can also study, discuss and debate ideas with their peers and receive answers to questions from tutors at times convenient to them.
The Disability Equality Duty (2006) and Equality Act (2010) legally require Education and Training organisations such as ours to be proactive in ensuring that people with disabilities are treated fairly. To help us fulfil this duty we ask anyone applying for a course with Dyslexia Action who has a disability to let us know of their requirements. We will seek to clarify what adjustments you will be entitled to and to provide support if you are eligible for a Disabled Students Allowance (DSA). We also encourage students with disabilities to give us feedback on all stages of their course so that we are better able to anticipate disability requirements in the future.
