  • Why choose this qualification?

    The qualifications have been developed to enable a wide range of learners to improve their knowledge and understanding of dyslexia, and in the case of the Level 3 Award in Supporting Learners with Dyslexia to equip them with the skills to support the learning of individuals with dyslexia.
