Why study with us?

Study with us – Find out more about our training courses


Dyslexia Action Training and Professional Development is an accredited national provider of training courses designed and delivered to support professionals working with individuals with dyslexia and specific learning difficulties. Our training courses are designed to strengthen the expertise and confidence of teachers, teaching assistants, SENCos, instructors, tutors, lecturers and learning support staff.

Our training courses and qualifications are offered online to enable practitioners who study with us to access materials and tutor support through our Virtual Learning Environments (VLEs). Our online tutors are highly qualified specialist teachers, assessors, and psychologists who have a depth of knowledge and experience in dyslexia and SpLD. Our CPD courses are accredited by the CPD Standards Office; other programmes include the Level 5 Diploma in Strategic Teaching Support for Dyslexia and Literacy, and the prestigious Level 7 Postgraduate Programme with modules validated by Middlesex University. 

Dyslexia Action Training has been delivering courses in dyslexia/SpLD for over 50 years and has an established professional partnership with The Dyslexia Guild, the professional membership organisation for specialist teachers and assessors and The Dyslexia Action Shop,  a one-stop-shop for all your specialist tuition and assessment needs.

If you are currently employed (or very recently) in a school or college setting to work with learners with literacy difficulties/dyslexia/SpLD,  you may be interested in our online courses to become a specialist teacher/practitioner*.
