Whether you are a SENCO who has completed the National Award for SEN Coordination and wish to progress your studies, or you are an experienced SENCO wishing to update your knowledge and skills, this course is suitable for you. It is particularly useful for those who are carrying out the SENCO role across schools or groups of schools or who are likely to become a cluster SENCO in the future.
