Onsite training courses

Onsite courses often work out considerably cheaper per-head than our Open Courses for groups of 8 or more, allowing you to train a larger number of staff within your available budget. They also have the additional benefit of being delivered onsite at your school or a location of your choice, removing the hassle of extra travel time and costs. 

For schools, colleges and other educational establishments we’re able to offer a range of training during INSET days, after-school sessions and more. The majority of our Open Training Courses are available for delivery onsite, or for an additional fee we can design a bespoke solution tailored to fit your specific needs. 

We also provide Onsite training for other, non-educational organisations looking to raise awareness of dyslexia amongst their employees.
