Wider Workforce

Work with children aged 5-19 years old in a school/college or are you part of the wider workforce working with families and children in the early years?

It's well-established that speech, language and communication (SLC) development in children and young people is essential to their success through education, into adulthood and employment.

This is the focus of TALK Derby.

Anyone who works with children has a crucial role to play in SLC development. You can get involved in various ways.


TALK Derby pledge

Simple, relevant and genuinely two-way conversations with children help to build their understanding and communication skills.

We’re asking the people of Derby to make a conscious commitment to spend more time talking and listening to the children in their lives – and to encourage others to do the same.

Whatever your role, show your support by making the TALK Derby pledge today.
