This chapter considers the expectations and challenges of teaching and learning clinical phonetic transcription to a requisite level of skill thereby supporting effective clinical practice. It considers how teaching and learning for pre-registration speech and language therapists (SLTs) programs could address the challenges posed by the expectations inherent in such a goal and reviews a solution-focused investigation into managing some of the key challenges identified. Once in the workplace, SLTs have the option to maintain and build their skills through independent revision of International Phonetic Alphabet symbols and participate in tutorials supporting revision online. However, in the main, these tools do not provide the supported, applied and active learning environment that therapists have identified as being most useful. SLTs appeared to use narrow transcription when they worked with specialist caseloads, that is, cleft lip and palate or hearing impairment but otherwise felt they did not have the time or confidence to use it.
