Resource Base has been successfully running in Southampton City Schools for a number of years. It is highly recommended for schools with staff who carry out speech, language and communication programmes set by Speech and Language Schools Assistants or NHS Speech and Language Therapists. Resource base provides on-going staff training opportunities in the area of speech, language and communication needs. Participants also get the chance to meet and learn from colleagues from other schools in the area.
“Resource base is extremely useful and covers all areas we struggle with in school. It is also a great opportunity to share ideas with staff from other schools” - Portswood Primary 2016
