Speech and language therapist apprenticeship

Provide treatment, support and care for children and adults

Speech and language therapists improve outcomes and the quality of life for people with speech, language, and communication needs, such as voice, fluency, or eating, drinking and swallowing difficulties. On the speech and language therapist apprenticeship, you could focus on working with children to identify and develop their communication so they can reach their full potential; adults with conditions such as stroke, dementia or Parkinson’s; or support those with learning disabilities to communicate, among other roles. You could also carry out research, work in specialist medical units, or provide advice on communication aids. Whatever your role, you’ll play a central role in the health, wellbeing and participation of people with a range of developmental and acquired conditions. All while providing person-centred care that recognises and values the key contribution of the person and their family or carers in developing appropriate support.
