The PGCert Education: National Award for Special Educational Needs (SEN) Co-ordination is a mandatory qualification for all newly appointed SENCos. It must be completed within three years of your SENCo appointment.
The government is committed to improving outcomes for children with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEN/D).
SENCos play a central role in schools to ensure that:
- effective provision is made for children with special educational needs and disability (SEN/D)
- and that the needs of individual learners are met.
Our course is delivered jointly with the Oxfordshire School Inclusion Team (OXSIT),
who support the development of best practice in schools and provide portfolio
Our course tutors have professional experience of senior leadership and the SENCO
role in a variety of schools. We also work in close partnership with hundreds of
schools and colleges and other organisations, some of which also contribute to the
course, e.g. Oxfordshire SEN team, Mulberry Bush Outreach Team, Oxfordshire
