Course content

This masters-level programme (60 credits) enables new and experienced SENCOs to enhance provision and outcomes for all children, especially those with special educational needs and/or disability, and develop themselves as a leader of change within their setting. Since 2009, all newly appointed SENCOs must attain this qualification within three years of appointment.

SENCOs become increasingly knowledgeable, confident leaders of change, make strong contributions to the leadership within their settings and are able to lead, devise, implement and evaluate provision to enhance the outcomes for the children in their care.

Assessment and teaching are highly relevant, innovative and combine face-to-face and online activity. The knowledgeable tutors leading and managing the programme bring experience as former SENCOs themselves, and we have been teaching and supporting participants since the inception of the National Award in 2009.

Course participants comment upon the extremely supportive nature of the teaching staff and the great value of working collaboratively with colleagues on the course.
