The Dyslexia Action Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Programme provides the opportunity for education professionals to improve their knowledge and skills in supporting learners with dyslexia, literacy and specific learning difficulties (SpLDs).
Our CPD short courses are accredited, which means the learning activities have reached the required standards and benchmarks of an accredited body. The learning value has been scrutinised to ensure integrity and quality. By undertaking accredited CPD training, educators are given the opportunity to ensure their qualifications, and therefore their skills and knowledge, are maintained and up to date.
The CPD Short Courses include dyslexia and co-occurring difficulties, memory weaknesses, structured, cumulative multisensory tuition, study 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 reading, writing, spelling and numeracy. Other modules focus on supporting adults with dyslexia and working with learners in an international setting. We also offer a range of level 7 units for qualified specialist SpLD professionals to refresh and update their specialist literacy programme knowledge through online masterclasses.
A wide range of professional teachers, practitioners and specialists can benefit from our CPD Courses. Delegates are usually:
