Course Summary

This course is for both aspiring and practising Special Educational Needs Co-ordinators, already working in the field of education and care. You will develop the skills and knowledge you need to help students with special educational needs including those with disabilities. All maintained mainstream schools, academies and free schools must have a qualified teacher who is designated as the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) for the school. As a SENCO, you will provide leadership and professional guidance to your colleagues and the school. As a SENCO in a mainstream school, you are legally required to gain a National Award for Special Educational Needs Coordination within three years of taking the post. This course meets that legal requirement. It delivers the learning outcomes required by the National College of Teaching and Leadership (NCTL) for the National Award for Special Educational Needs Coordination.
