We're very proud of the success Elklan has had in helping the wider educational workforce to develop the speaking and listening skills of all children and young people, and especially those with particular needs.
We consistently receive feedback informing us that our courses are enjoyable, as well as extremely useful and informative.
We're also pleased to be key players in Government-funded programmes such as TALK Derby, where our training has supported major efforts to improve social mobility in the city.
Elklan is proud to have been funded by the Dept of Education in England to provide the training material for the Early Years Professional Development Programme (EYPDP) and to be key players in devising the programme and disseminating the training through our network of tutors to over 50 Local Authorities across England.
We are delighted that phase two of the programme, EYPDP – Building on Success, continued to use our training and tutors to deliver accredited courses to Early Years practitioners in a further 51 Local Authorities.
From 2019 to October 2021, Elklan delivered an extensive programme to develop the confidence and skills of Early Years workforce in Herefordshire in supporting children at risk of developing or with speech, language and communication needs.
Elklan Tutors based in the Hereford area delivered accredited training to 189 EYPs, and supported 51 pre-schools and nurseries to achieve Elklan’s Communication Friendly Setting (CFSe) status. 21 childminders worked hard to attain Communication Friendly Home-Based Setting (CFHBS) status
We know that the Elklan approach works, because an increasing body of evidence tells us so. Structured evaluation and independent research confirm the positive impact we're having on both professional practice and children's development.
