Communication Champions

About the Norwich Opportunity Area project

This online training package was designed as part of the Norwich Opportunity Area Communication Champion project. The original vision of the project was to improve children’s early speech, language and communication development across the City of Norwich through training a group of Communication Champion Leaders in key concepts in children’s speech, language and communication.

These Communication Champions were then responsible for cascading training to their colleagues and other local schools and settings in order to improve local knowledge and expertise.
