A full-time post-holder would be required to complete data collection across all designated areas.

  • Excellent Welsh Language skills, both written and oral.
  • Strengths in building rapport with young children, parents and practitioners.
  • Ability to accurately follow assessment protocols and record data accurately.
  • Ability to contribute to the dissemination of research findings, co-author research reports and publications on the research conducted as part of the project.

Our Speech, Language and Communication Research team has a strong reputation across Wales for delivering high quality and impactful research to enable an excellent experience for both students and staff.
