Why SVS for FEES Training?


We think the SVS Training programme of learning is unique in FEES education programmes and our delegates’ successes encourage us to continue.

We are skilled advanced clinical practitioner speech and language therapists, working together in private practice and in the NHS, and during our 25+ years of working together we have been so fortunate to have worked with and been trained by excellent people. We have also built a network of these amazing health and industry colleagues, which enriches our own clinical practice and now our education programmes.

Whether you opt for a bespoke course for your team in your own department, or attend the Nottingham based courses, our philosophy of teaching underpins our commitment to you - our comprehensive FEES training programme supports you to succeed and we are with you every step of the way.

Our learners come with a specialist knowledge of dysphagia and aspirations to provide the best service delivery to make a difference to patient outcomes.

We respect and build on your prior knowledge and skills, and, because we recognise that learning and consolidating new skills is challenging, we offer you small group teaching, one to one coaching, and a differentiated personal development plan.

The curriculum adheres to the standards set in the RCSLT competency framework and policy document and it is delivered using techniques from medical education theory by a friendly and approachable specialist faculty.

We have developed our own bespoke training and assessment tools and we can offer you opportunities to experience the newest technologies for practical skills training and supervision.

We also encourage you to have fun and to expand your own networks so that you are part of a wider community of learning.

You will return to your practice with skills that you can apply immediately, and with a clear plan of action for your future development and for the development of your FEES service.

But don’t take our word for it - please read their testimonials and if you want to discuss your own requirements, we would love to hear from you.

"I really enjoyed the theoretical part of the day and then getting to put it all into practise. The level of support from the facilitators was great. I thought the pace of the teaching was really good." SG,  Highly Specialist SLT

"All (activities and teaching methods) were excellent. Practice at being the endoscopist, assessor and scribe was really insightful. Tutor feedback was helpful looking at development objectives. I really enjoyed the interactivity of both ENT surgeons."   RB, Highly Specialist SLT 

"The course was so well organised, your presentation style was excellent. I feel infinitely more confident in my knowledge and skill of FEES now. I couldn't fault it at all! Thank you! " B.F, Highly Specialist Speech and Language Therapist
