We offer training for those working with children or young people in early years settings, childminders, schools, FE colleges and other specialist provisions.
All our courses are evidence-based and teach strategies listed on the What Works database. Most of our courses are now available as blended e-learning, giving you the best of both worlds: an opportunity to learn key information via our e-learning platform AND weekly one-hour webinars providing support and interaction from an Elklan tutor and other colleagues. Face-to-face training is also available.
When you attend one of our practitioner courses, you will receive everything you need to complete the course successfully:

The opportunity to complete our bespoke e-Learning Log, enabling you to submit your work online, and have it marked and returned by your Elklan Tutor
Support from your tutor and the Elklan team whilst completing your Elklan training
