High quality training for education professionals working in the area of special needs.

At Communicate-ed we are passionate about seeing people developed to their true potential. That passion drives our own training portfolio, and extends to other situations, including into the developing nations.

Our reputation has been built upon our courses dealing with Examination Access Arrangements. Communicate-ed is the largest provider of training in Access Arrangements in the UK; we train thousands of professionals involved in this area each year. We also offer a range of other modules providing training in various aspects of special educational need. All of our courses are available online and we also offer face to face training in venues round the country. Our expert course tutors are also available to run tailor-made courses for schools, colleges, local authorities or support services.

We aim to encourage educators to reach their true potential, and through training and provision of resources we equip educators to ensure that their students are able to do the same.

Through our charitable trust we support projects promoting education and economic empowerment for the poorest of the poor in developing nations. We have so far contributed £800,000 towards such projects.
