Elklan Training is delighted to be a sponsor of this virtual SENIA conference as we feel that our training offer uniquely fits with the ambitions of SENIA of inclusive education for all. We provide educators with evidence based, cost -effective accredited training which enables them to support children and young people with speech, language and communication needs (SLCN) and other forms of SEN in the classroom. 

Elklan is the leading provider of accredited training for education and early years staff in the field of speech, language and communication in the UK.  Over 70,000 learners across the world have received UK accreditation through our international network of nearly 3,000 Elklan tutors. Elkan tutors are predominantly speech & language pathologists (SLP) or specialist advisory teachers in SLCN. 

We run a “train the trainer” model which allows training to be delivered for you by your local Elklan tutor. If you employ a SLP, then consider training them as an Elklan tutor and roll out the training to all your staff. 

All our courses are now delivered via e-learning as well as being available for face-to-face delivery when this option is available again. 

Our courses include training for:

  • Mainstream teachers
  • Special needs teachers
  • Learning support assistants
  • Parents

Our courses cover all age ranges from 1-25 years and the following SEN’s:

  • SLCN
  • Developmental Language Disorder (DLD)
  • Severe and complex learning needs

Liz Elks, one of Elklan’s founders, has been proud to have been invited as a speaker at the last three SENIA conferences. Over the last 25 years, she has taught hundreds of education staff, speech pathologists and parents both in the UK and abroad using all the Elklan Training packages. This in turn has supported countless children and young people to develop effective communication.
