Those new to the SENCo role, Early Years provider SENCos for settings, trainee SENCos
Outline of event:
Are you a new SENCo? Do you have a new SENCo starting at your school?
This course runs each term and aims to support a SENCo right at the beginning of their new role and provide early help and guidance to get started.
SENCo induction is part of a planned suite of training to support the induction and development of those recently appointed. Most participants who register for this half day training also undertake the further training, one session each term on SENCo 1, SENCo 2 and SENCo 3
Intended to provide the "nuts and bolts"; many participants continue later to undertake the more theoretical framework of the National SENCo Award.
This course provides practical information about the role of the SENCo and the policies and procedures that SENCos need to help them meet the needs of SEN children in their setting.
Learners will further increase their knowledge of the SENCo role and responsibilities by developing and understanding of a range of children's special educational needs and ways to meet those needs.
Emphasis will be placed on identifying and assessing pupils needs; understanding the graduated response and practical SEN strategies. Developing a positive relationship with parents, duties of the school; identification of pupils with SEN; EHC assessments and EHC plans; personal budgets; EHC plans for young people over 18; the Local Offer; key contacts and SEN study buddies.
