This hub is for speech and language therapy support workers and the speech and language therapists (SLTs) who manage them, and includes information about the diverse roles of support workers, training and development within the role, career information, as well as a professional framework and toolkit.
These pages are designed for support workers to find information, resources, and networking links.
The RCSLT support worker framework offers guidance on roles, competencies, education (training) and continuing development of support workers.
Based on the support worker framework, this toolkit provides practical tools to support implementation of this framework in services. It is aimed at support workers and those managing and supervising their work.
