Developing the Essential Role of the SENCO

Course Aim                 

Mainstream school SEND leaders continue to face significant challenges as the number of children with SEND continue to rise, funding and support is insufficient, teachers’ confidence to meet a range of needs is often low and a new national SEND system is on the horizon. The need for creative and skilled strategic leadership of SEND in mainstream schools is even more essential than ever.

This one-day course will provide colleagues with an opportunity to consider the role of the SENCO as a strategic leader.  It aims to support those leading SEND in the school to develop and implement their vision for improving outcomes for children and young people. The day will provide an opportunity for delegates to share practical approaches and good practice in planning and developing effective provision for pupils with SEND across their school.

This course is suitable for primary and secondary mainstream SENCOs or aspiring SENCOs, Inclusion Coordinators and other leaders with a strategic responsibility for SEND in their school.
