Please call 0114 271 7617 for more information

Wave 1 training

Wave 1 training aims to develop expertise in enhancing speech, language and communication skills of all children.

Skills and knowledge of wave 1 strategies need to be embedded throughout schools in non-teaching areas as well as classrooms.

Courses are therefore most appropriate for whole school staff groups and bespoke packages can be developed from a range of modules, to be run on your own premises, at a time which is convenient for you. Depending on the size of room available, up to 20 people can attend.

The training costs £120 per hour.

Please contact Alice Woods (primary) or Sasha Davies (secondary) if you would like to discuss the content of courses further, or if you’d like to find out if a particular course is suitable for your staff.

We also offer training around the Baseline Language Screen. Please complete the application form to book a place.

Wave 2 training

Wave 2 oral language interventions are generalised intervention packages designed to boost language skills for targeted groups of children.

Training days are designed to give teaching staff the skills to set up and run language groups in schools.

Three intervention packages are available:

If you would like to book a place on the VIP training please fill in the VIP training application form.
If you have already attended training and would like to order the resource packs for VIP or LEAP interventions, please fill in the resource request application form.

If you have any questions, please contact Alice Woods for further information.

Buying in additional services

The Sheffield speech and language therapy service provides an equitable service across the city into all primary and secondary schools.

However, resources are often insufficient to meet the growing need.

In addition, whilst NHS services traditionally target wave 3 children, many schools are seeing a growing role for the service within waves 1 and 2.

As a result, some schools and units choose to purchase additional speech and language therapy support to top up the level of service provided by the NHS.
