Speech and language therapists (SLTs) enjoy a rewarding, specialist career working with parents, teachers, carers, nurses, doctors and occupational therapists. Almost one in five experience communication difficulties and this is where SLTs support people to develop, restore, or give strategies to build communication. SLTs also support people who struggle to eat, drink or swallow. SLTs work in hospitals, schools, community clinics and specialist units.
You will learn core skills in topics such as linguistics, phonetics, science, psychology, and speech and language pathology. You will also develop your clinical and professional skills through practical placements and modules that cover counselling and professional skills.
Successful completion of a Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) approved programme provides eligibility to apply for admission to the HCPC Register. ‘Speech and language therapist’ is a protected title, and you will only be entitled to use it if you are registered with the HCPC. Please be aware that having a disability should not be a barrier to becoming HCPC registered and refer to their advice on disability and becoming a health and care professional. This course has secured HCPC approval.
