Concept Northern’s e-learning portal – conceptlearning.co.uk – is a gateway to flexible, on-demand assistive-technology training. Courses feature blended teaching resources which fuse traditional-style learning with interactive modules, videos and quizzes.
Assistive Technology Courses
Concept Learning covers the latest assistive-software products and applications. Our software courses are in-depth and comprehensive, but manageable. On average, courses take two to three hours to complete. Most are CPD-certified meaning learners can develop their knowledge while adding valuable hours to their personal development portfolio.
Software We Cover

- Texthelp Read&Write
- MatchWare MindView
- Livescribe smartpens
- Dragon dictation software
Qualifications & Training Programmes
Our qualifications and training programs offer more comprehensive learning experiences than our regular Assistive Technology courses. All are focused on giving learners with dyslexia the skills and confidence to succeed in the workplace. Depending on circumstance, learners can choose from:
- Our SQA Customised Award rated on the SCQF Framework.
- Our comprehensive training programme accredited by City&Guilds.
Our awareness courses increase understanding and raise awareness of key topics and issues. Awareness of issues affecting workplace or educational life can contribute to better environments and individual development. For example, our online Dyslexia Awareness course defines the term “dyslexia”, explores its effects, details strategies for improving the experience of a dyslexic person, and distinguishes between dyslexia and co-occurring conditions.
Our courses take advantage of the latest e-learning authoring tools and learner-management systems. Features include:
- Interactive, engaging resources.
- Courses unique to Concept Learning, not “off-the-shelf”.
- Responsive design for mobile learning.
- Individual support through our “Ask a Trainer” feature.
- Accessible 24/7.
- Learner tracking and progress functions.
