How to become an Elklan Tutor

Attend a Total Training Pack (TTP) in the course you wish to deliver. These are currently run by webinar and will be delivered as face-to-face learning again in the future. To deliver additional courses, simply purchase the teaching materials for the course you wish to teach - NO additional TTP training required!

Specialist teachers with additional qualifications or suitable relevant experience in supporting children and young people with speech and language needs can also apply. If you wish to be considered for full tutor status, please apply for the TTP you wish to complete and select 3b on the form. You will then be asked to provide further information regarding your qualifications. Your place on the TTP will be confirmed once this has been reviewed. Please see our policy for more information. If you don't have these additional qualifications or suitable experience, then you can be a co-tutor and teach alongside a full tutor - or ask us to consider whether you may be eligible for full tutor status.
