CPD Short Courses for teaching professionals at all levels

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for teaching professionals 

CPD short courses

We believe it is important to provide education professionals with opportunities to continue their professional development to help support learners with dyslexia and specific learning difficulties (SpLDs).

The importance of Accredited CPD training. As explained by The CPD Certification Service, CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development and is the term used to describe the learning activities professionals engage in to develop and enhance their abilities. Accredited CPD training means the learning activity has reached the required Continuing Professional Development standards and benchmarks of an accredited body. The learning value has been scrutinised to ensure integrity and quality. By undertaking CPD accredited training, educators are given the opportunity to ensure their qualifications, and therefore their skills and knowledge, are maintained and up to date. 

Through a range of CPD short courses, education support professionals can hone their skills and knowledge in order to be better prepared to face the challenges of supporting students with dyslexia and SpLDs in today’s education system. All courses are practice-led, delivered online and are fully supported by a tutor.

How you will benefit?

Our CPD courses have been set up to:

  • Add real value to your educational setting, bringing new skills and abilities to create the optimum outcomes for students in your care
  • Develop practical competence and personal confidence in your strategies in working with students with literacy challenges

CPD Short Courses for Dyslexia, Literacy and Numeracy

Through a range of Level 4 and 5 CPD short courses, education support professionals can hone their skills and knowledge in order to be better prepared to face the challenges of supporting students with dyslexia and SpLDs in a classroom setting. The CPD Programme we offer is quality-assured by The CPD Standards Office and is made of independent short online courses, referred to as units. These units allow you to build up your own programme over time to gain either an Award (three units) or a Certificate (two awards/six units). 

The CPD Short Courses for dyslexia and literacy 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 CPD 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.
