Course summary

This award develops your knowledge and critical understanding of key concepts and contemporary debates, enabling you to lead and co-ordinate SENCo provision effectively in educational settings. The PGCert in Special Educational Needs: Leading Effective and Inclusive Practice (National Award for Special Educational Needs Coordination) is usually studied on a part-time basis and completed within one academic year. It will enable existing and aspiring SENCos (who have completed an induction period) to develop the necessary skills, knowledge and understanding to meet National College for Teaching and Leadership's (NCTL) learning outcomes for the National Award for Special Educational Needs Coordination.

This award is recognised in England as a professional qualification of high standing which must be held by school-based SENCos within three years of their appointment. Participants with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS, EYTS or QTLS) will achieve a PGCert Special Educational Needs: Leading Effective and Inclusive Practice (National Award for Special Educational Needs Coordination). Participants who do not have Qualified Teacher Status will gain PGCert Special Educational Needs: Leading Effective and Inclusive Practice, though not the National Award.

What you should know about this course
