Months of entry
This qualification is a requirement for special educational needs coordinators (SENCO) working in state-maintained schools in England and Wales. The course is also highly relevant to inclusion and special educational needs leaders and managers who wish to improve the quality of inclusion and special educational needs and disability provision in their setting, whether they are working in the UK or abroad.
Developed in collaboration with academic staff and expert practitioners, the course provides an exceptional distance learning programme coupled with opportunities to participate in workshops and conferences available to all students in the Carnegie School of Education. Working closely with your tutor, you will undertake a thorough self-evaluation to identify gaps in your knowledge and understanding. This will help to link your learning to your professional practice and will enable you to steer the direction of your development.
Our Virtual Learning Environment will allow you to regularly connect with your personal tutor and share your experiences with your peers. You will be encouraged to collaborate with fellow students on the course and colleagues in your school in order to refine your knowledge and get the most from the programme. Throughout the year, you will be provided with online resources and support materials, including recorded expert presentations, to help you meet your learning needs.
Our vision for children with special educational needs and disabilities is the same as for all children and young people - that they achieve well in their early years, at school and in college, and lead happy and fulfilled lives.
