Welcome to Norfolk and Waveney Children’s Speech and Language Therapy Services’ training page! We’re pleased to be able to provide a range of short, free introductory courses which will provide you with some simple strategies to use within your classroom straight away.  

Our mission is to reach as many schools and settings as possible so we are running each course twice a month (virtually at present) and all courses are also available as a webinar which you can access in your own time if the live training is not at a convenient time for you or you want to recap information and strategies. We also have a range of resources on our website that link to these training sessions for further information and ideas.
