For 40 years, Dyslexia Action Training has been supporting online Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for international schools as well as UK-based educators. We love hearing how our courses and qualifications make a difference in the lives of education professionals working with individuals with dyslexia and specific learning difficulties.
However, it is also amazing for us to receive accolades in various established industry awards, as it gives us great confidence that what we offer is valued by acclaimed leaders and experts in the education section as well.
Shortlisted – Teach Primary Awards 2021
We are excited to announce our online CPD course The Emotionally Connected Classroom has been shortlisted in the CPD category of The 2021 Teach Primary Awards.
We know that there has been an increased focus on mental health and wellbeing in schools during the recent pandemic and a need for teaching professionals to help support children struggling in this area. Last year, we released a new short CPD course to allow educators to enhance their skills and develop a better understanding of Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH). It is suitable for teaching support roles, as well as teachers, SENCOs and other SEND professionals who you would like to enhance their knowledge to help support learners with social, emotional and mental health needs by learning to:
- Understand the impact of stress and trauma on the brain
- Discuss pupils’ emotions and the impact this can have on their behaviour
- Identify ideas for developing relational based practice in your provision
- Apply strategies to build pupils resources and resilience to manage their emotions

What our delegates said about this course
“This course has certainly helped me cultivate a desire to better understand how I can connect with the students I work with. This includes helping them better understand themselves, and how their brain works in controlling (or not controlling) their emotions, behaviours, and actions effectively.”
“I have absolutely loved this course – it was exactly what I felt was missing from my ‘toolkit’ and now I can make sure that the impact is shared more widely in my new setting for the benefit of the children we serve. Thank you.”

Here’s what one of the judges had to say:
“This specialist online training is comprehensive, flexible, and suited to educators across all settings. Although focused on dyslexia support and building literacy, the theory and practical skills encourage good pedagogical practice which should benefit all learners. The use of one-to-one guidance from tutors, and the inclusion of collective contributions so that participants are able to learn from peers, provide opportunities to meet individual needs targeted to specific educational contexts.” J Berry
