The Speech, Language and Communication Framework (SLCF)

Developed by the Communication Trust, the SLCF is a free online professional development tool which sets out the skills and knowledge that everyone working with children and young people need in order to support the speech, language and communication of those they work with. The SLCF self-evaluation tool enables individuals to highlight their professional development needs and to find training, resources or information to ‘fill the gaps’ identified by the SLCF.

  • Evaluate your skills, knowledge and confidence around SLC
  • Find training and resources tailored to your learning needs
  • Track your development progress over time
  • Try out online activities for on the spot learning
  • Assess the strengths and development needs of groups of practitioners, whole settings or organisations
