What will I learn?

Our popular distance learning courses allow you to study for a recognised qualification that is of value to your work and personal development and is a great route to take if you are looking to further develop existing skills (provided you are resident in England). The courses are Level 2 qualifications, accredited by NCFE Cache, an acknowledged leader in the field of distance learning.

This course is aimed at people who have some experience of working with children but want to have a better understanding of the specific learning difficulties children may have.

Learners will study the following units

  • Understanding Specific Learning Difficulties (SLD)
  • Understand the effects of SLD
  • Understand the diagnosis of SLD
  • Understand supporting individuals with SLD
  • Understand the context of SLD

    Government funding means that we are able to offer this course free of charge to eligible delegates. Learners will need to complete all units within 6 weeks and in the event of non-completion, a £100 fee to cover registration, administration fees and learning materials will be charged.

    Where will it lead me?

    Learners may also be interested in other NCFE/CACHE online courses offered by the college including
