Level 3 Award for Special Educational Needs Coordinators in Early Years Settings
The Early Years Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo) qualification is for a Level 3 practitioner in a private, voluntary, independent setting or LA nursery. This new qualification has been developed to support early years practitioners to gain accreditation for the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to perform the Early Years SENCo role effectively. The Early Years SENCo has a key role in supporting colleagues and coordinating the response of the setting to children with SEN as set out in the Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice. As part of the award, practitioners complete 2 mandatory accredited SEND modules to support their professional development and to raise the status of the role of SENCo within the sector.
