A SENCO (Special Educational Needs Coordinator) is a specialist teacher whose main role is to coordinate the provision for children with special educational needs or disabilities while they are at school. With around 1.32 million students currently in schools who have been diagnosed with special educational needs (SEN) in England alone, there is a growing need for qualified SENCOs. The SENCO Bundle provides you with the foundation of knowledge you need to start your learning journey towards a career in special educational needs.

Becoming a SENCO is a rewarding, worthwhile, and at times challenging's career. It’s the ideal career path for anyone who loves working with children and is passionate about supporting children with additional needs. SENCOs should be able to build strong relationships with pupils and their parents or guardians to ensure that the children are getting the support they need when they are at school. You will also be responsible for coordinating with the rest of the school to ensure the day-to-day operation of the school’s SEN policy. You will assess the needs of pupils and coordinate additional support for them as and when they need it.

This course bundle will give you a solid introduction to all the skills required to become a successful SENCO. It will guide you through supporting other teaching staff and working with the senior leadership team to ensure appropriate support is being provided to pupils with additional needs. It will stress the importance of interpersonal communication and building strong relationships with pupils and their families to create a support network. It will also explore child psychology, child safeguarding, and professional communication skills to ensure you’re prepared for the next step towards becoming a qualified SENCO.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
