Developed in collaboration with academic staff and expert practitioners, the Special Education Needs Co-Ordination from Leeds Beckett University provides an exceptional distance learning programme coupled with opportunities to participate in workshops and conferences available to all students in the Carnegie School of Education. Working closely with your tutor, you will undertake a thorough self-evaluation to identify gaps in your knowledge and understanding. This will help to link your learning to your professional practice and will enable you to steer the direction of your development.

Our Virtual Learning Environment will allow you to regularly connect with your personal tutor and share your experiences with your peers. You will be encouraged to collaborate with fellow students on the course and colleagues in your school in order to refine your knowledge and get the most from the programme. Throughout the year, you will be provided with online resources and support materials, including recorded expert presentations, to help you meet your learning needs.


Having developed essential skills in diagnosis and intervention, provision management and coaching and having also refined your ability to work effectively with outside agencies and stakeholders, you will be able to practise as a SENCO in any school. You will also have the confidence to take on a high-profile leadership role in your school, and you will be able to successfully motivate other teachers to promote inclusion in their classrooms.
