Special CPD offer for courses starting on 15 July 2020, book now to secure your place

We released a special CPD summer offer on short courses starting 15 July. Suitable for qualified classroom teachers, teaching/learning assistants, study skills tutors and those overseas, these CPD courses are delivered entirely online and do not require access to a student or a learner. Our units focus on nurturing the development of learners within the classroom/learning environment both with and without specific learning difficulties. You will be given tutor support through forums on Moodle, our virtual learning environment.

Our Level 4 and 5 CPD short courses include dyslexia and co-occurring difficulties, memory weaknesses, structured, cumulative multisensory tuitionstudy skills and assistive technologies to name a few.  Many of our level 4 and 5 units focus on how to nurture the development of school learners with dyslexia with regard to key skills, such as readingwritingspelling, and numeracy. Other modules focus on supporting adults with dyslexia and working with learners in an international setting.

Each unit course requires between 20-30 hours of study over a seven-week period. There are set start and assignment submission dates. To study you should be currently (or recently within the last 2 years) employed to work with primary, secondary, or adult learners.

CPD Standards Office Accreditation 

Dyslexia Action has been successfully assessed as an online CPD provider by The CPD Standards Office and has received formal independent CPD accreditation for its online units.

All our units will be issued with a Dyslexia Action Certificate of Completion. This certificate can subsequently be used within a formal CPD record for a professional body or employer.
