SLT Education

In the European Union, the Education of Speech and Language Therapists is situated on a Bachelor or/and a Masters level and in different faculties. The initial training of SLTs reflects the scientific, professional and interdisciplinary aspects of the profession.

SLT across Europe

European Speech and Language Therapists can move across the borders of EU. As education, professional practice and language are different in the different countries, this can represent a challenge for the profession. CPLOL keeps updated information on EU decisions and legal issues in order to maintain a high quality of the SLT professional practice, for the benefit of the patients in all the countries.
