Support your SENCO's professional development

In September 2009 it became law for every new SENCO in a mainstream school to gain the National Award for SEN Coordination within 3 years of taking up the post. The course is designed around the Learning Outcomes for SENCOs, specified by the Department for Education and aims to develop expertise in the leadership of SEN/D in schools.

The programme aims to develop reflective SENCOs who have a strong knowledge and understanding of the legislative context for SEND and are able to evidence application of theoretical concepts underpinning effective leadership and practice.

Students will have access to a high quality, interactive programme delivered by SEN specialists and will have mentor support from an experienced SENCO.
