We want tutors to be able to get up and running with their students on Units of Sound as quickly and smoothly as possible.
The online Practitioner’s Course is designed to do just this and guide you on how to use the programme.
The course covers everything you need to know, and it’s broken down into 10 bite-sized modules. Each module is predicted to take about 30 minutes and so the whole course is around 5 – 6 hours in total, but each module can be accessed individually at your convenience to fit in with your timetable.
The modules take you step by step through the programme in a logical order with videos and activities to reinforce learning. It also shows you how to personalise Units of Sound for each students to maximise progress.
The 10-question assessment, at the end of the course, generates a CPD certificate to acknowledge success and competence. A Units of Sound specialist is always on hand whilst you are doing the course.
There are places built into the license fee depending on the number of licenses purchased.
The course is suitable for teachers, teaching assistants or volunteers.
There is always a Units of Sound tutor on hand to give help, advice and guidance as you work through the course.
You will be ready to work with students, confident in your own Units of Sound skills. You need to get a score of 70% on the final assessment to generate the CPD certificate.
We can also provide face to face training, or webinar training by arrangement.

Spelling, Memory and Dictation scores are monitored automatically in the programme and the tutor can access details and scores via the online records. Reading is monitored one to one using the ready-made additional reading materials.
