National Senco Award

National SENCO Award

The Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice 2014, sets out the requirement for schools to have a qualified teacher as SENCo. All SENCOs new to role since 2009 must successfully complete the National Award for SEN Coordination within three years of coming into post. This is a national requirement.

Suffolk, in conjunction with the Eastern Partnership, has been running the Masters Level SENCo Award since 2009. The Award is accredited by Hertfordshire University.

The course will enable you to meet the nationally prescribed learning outcomes and because you can attend the training in your local area you will have the advantage of being able to access information about systems and processes which directly relate to your school or setting.
