There have been many changes and barriers to education for children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) in the last few years. One of the biggest challenge schools face is making their settings inclusive and with the impact of COVID-19, this will continue to be a complex area that’s difficult to address without adequate support.

The brand new Advanced SENCO Specialist Certificate will help you better support your pupils with SEND.

How it works:

It consists of 5 online modules that you complete in your own time, at your own leisure. Each module consists of learning materials plus online videos and quizzes along the way, to make sure you’re absorbing what you’re learning.

At the end of the course you will be able to download a certificate of completion which you can use to show Ofsted that you are being proactive in taking Advanced SENCO training.
