About

The National Award for SEN Coordinators programme at the University of Roehampton meets the learning outcomes agreed nationally by the DFE and the SENCO Award providers' group for the NASENCO qualification. The course content is informed by current SEN and disability legislation and underpinned by current theory and research led practice pertaining to Special and Inclusive Education.

Overview

The National Award for SEN Coordinators programme at the University of Roehampton  fulfils the Statutory requirements of the 2014 Children and Families Act that all new-to-post SENCOs should receive a postgraduate qualification to equip them with the knowledge and skills to undertake this complex role. We are one of the accredited national providers, found on the National Association for Special Education Needs website (NASEN).

Special Educational Needs Coordinators (SENCOs) play a vital role in leading the coordination of provision for children and young people with SEN and/or disabilities in schools. In September 2009 it became law for every new SENCO in a mainstream school to gain the Masters-level National Award for Special Educational Needs Co-ordination within 3 years of taking up the post.

Career options

The Award should enable SENCOs to develop and demonstrate the personal and professional qualities and leadership they need to shape an ethos and culture based upon person-centred, inclusive, practice in which the interests and needs of children and young people, pupils with SEN and/or disabilities are at the heart of all that takes place.

Our experience is that many students undertaking this award progress quickly to further promotion, especially to school leadership teams.
