Course Description

The National Award for SEN Coordination is a TDA nationally approved qualification for teachers in the role of special educational needs co-ordinator (SENCO). The award is offered through the South West Consortium consisting of Plymouth University and the University of Exeter, working in partnership with the local authorities of Bournemouth, Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Plymouth, Poole and Somerset. The modules are designed to explicitly relate to the SENCO Learning Outcomes. They ensure a critical theoretical perspective while also maintaining relevant context-based practical outcomes. The programme is strongly rooted in effective practice (locally, regionally, nationally and internationally), being up-to-date, relevant, research-based and led, taught and facilitated by people with relevant current experience, expertise and skills. Modules will draw upon local context and make use of local expertise. The programme includes opportunities for SENCOs to apply theory to practice, to undertake practical activity in their own school and evaluate and improve their practice, and learn from effective practice in other schools.
