What is the NASENCO course? 

In September 2009 it became law in the UK for every new SENCO in a mainstream school to gain the National Award for SEN Coordination (NASENCO) within 3 years of taking up the post. This course is designed around the Learning Outcomes for SENCOs, specified by the Department for Education, and aims to develop expertise in the leadership of SEND in schools.

SENCOs on this course will have access to a high-quality and interactive programme delivered by SEND experts and specialists.  They will learn how to integrate theory and practice to support the development of their role and in turn, learn how to improve positive outcomes for pupils with SEND.

  2. We advocate inclusive practice and support SENCOs in using critical reflection, research and tasks to improve provision and outcomes for vulnerable pupils.
  3. SENCOs will develop a deep understanding of the SEN Code of Practice and other recent policy, guidance and research and understand how to utilise this to improve SEND provision.
  4. SENCOs will be taught and supported by a highly-skilled course leader and visiting tutor who are experts in SEND provision.
  5. Four high-quality training days allow personalised learning and support from leading experts in SEND.
  6. SENCOs who successfully complete 60 Level 7 credits achieve a PGCert in Supporting SEND Through Inclusive Practice and may carry 60 credits towards future study at Master’s level.
