Emotional Literacy Support Assistant (ELSA)

Emotional Literacy Support Assistant (ELSA) is a training course for teaching assistants working in schools.  It is run annually and in Slough runs over 4 days. There is an on going supervision component. ELSA's are trained by educational psychologists to run short, well targeted and evaluated programmes with children experiencing a wide range of emotional difficulties. Our ELAS's are accredited locally, but ELSA courses are run across the country and in Slough we are part of the national network.
