This free training course will be available again this year

Supporting Dyslexic Learners in Different Contexts

– This is a two-part distance learning based training programme developed for Skills for Life teachers and support staff who haven’t previously been trained to work with dyslexic adult learners.

– It has been designed to appeal to staff from Further Education, adult community based learning, workplace and offender settings.

– It aims to fit between the ubiquitous awareness raising day and a more intensive dyslexia specialist course.

– It offers participants a basic understanding of dyslexia and a range of practical advice and strategies for one-to-one and group work

– Part 1 – A face-to-face training day where participants meet their tutor, are given a basic understanding of dyslexia and are introduced to the distance learning materials

– Part 2 – A 20 hour tutor supported distance learning course on CD-ROM and the Internet. Participants can choose 5 from 26 modules that cover the different settings and the Embedded Learning Materials. It is here that the practical advice and strategies are to be found along with a wealth of other useful information.

– Once participants have successfully finished the five modules they will receive a Certificate of Completion
Note: Currently this course is not accredited but the course is fully mapped to the current NQF levels 2,3 and 4.

– Delivery of the part 1 training days run from 18th September to 8th December 2006 at a number of local venues across England

You can find out more about the training and register for events by logging on to www.cfbt.com/dyslexia

or get further details by emailing sdl@cfbt.com

Note: CfBT are also offering organisations their own training events. They will need to supply the venue and at least 12 appropriate staff; we will provide trainers, materials and funding for lunch (up to £6.50 per head). If an organisation is interested in taking advantage of this opportunity they will need to contact sdl@cfbt.com and place ‘bespoke’ in the subject line.
