National Award for Special Educational Needs Co-ordination (PGCert)


Course Description

Develop your critical thinking skills in order to enrich your practice as an Special Educational Needs (SEN) Coordinator on this government-approved course for part-time learners. Research-active staff and students from a wide variety of educational settings enrich the learning experience.

You will be supported by highly-experienced and research-active teaching staff who are attuned to the needs of part-time students. From content delivery to the way in which staff and students communicate, the course is designed to suit those who are currently working.

The curriculum consists of direct teaching plus guided independent study. As a student, you will develop your skills in research and critical thinking to become a more reflective, independent-minded practitioner. You will be encouraged to question and challenge, to investigate problems and come up with solutions for learners. This enables you to enrich your own practice and gives you the skills to effect positive change in your workplace.

There are two outcomes in this course, the Postgraduate Certificate SEN and the National SENCO Award; those students who are qualified teachers and gain the Postgraduate Certificate can convert their award to a National SENCO Award within five years on completion of their SENCO portfolio.
