Course content

The National Award for SEN Coordination remains a mandatory requirement for newly appointed SENCos from 2008. Experienced SENCos and aspirant SENCos with appropriate experience and access to working with the SEND leadership at a strategic level are also welcome to apply.

Manchester Metropolitan University is a nasen approved provider of NASENCO.

Our 60-credit, Postgraduate Certificate programme builds upon six years of development and successful delivery. This qualification is proving key to effective SEND provision development, career progression and a first step to completion of a Masters in Inclusive Education.

The award is designed, delivered and assessed to provide evidence for National College for Teaching and Learning Outcomes standards. Engagement in the award impacts upon the
provision in schools and on the progress of children with SEN.

We offer a choice of delivery models, both daytime and evening, on campus and in local authorities, subject to group viability and an existing Collaborative Partnership arrangement being
in place.
