We are Speech and Language UK (formerly I CAN) – we want every child to face the future with confidence. For 1.7 million children in the UK learning to talk and understand words feels like an impossible hurdle. We want to reach children earlier to make sure every child has the skills to face the future. We design innovative tools and training for nursery staff and teachers, give families the confidence and skills to help their child and put pressure on politicians to prioritise support for children.

We’re thrilled to be working with the Education Development Trust to deliver Phase 3 of the Early Years Professional Development Programme (EYPDP). Through this programme funded by the DfE we will provide a blended mix of online e-Learning and facilitated webinars for up to 10,000 Early Years Practitioners (EYPs).  The programme will run over a two-year period. It starts in February 2023 and there are staggered start dates for the four cohorts of EYPs who will take part.  Each EYP will receive training in three learning modules Communication and Language, early Mathematics and Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED). This is an amazing opportunity to be involved in embedding the best practice to support our youngest children and give them the best start in learning.

  • Coordinate teams of Programme Trainers across England to support the delivery of the training schedule
