The National Award for SEN Coordination is a DfE approved post-graduate qualification for teachers in the role of SENCO. The Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Regulations 2014 (Clause 49) set out the requirement for SENCOs in mainstream schools to obtain this qualification. SENCOs ‘new to the role’ have 3 years from date of appointment to obtain the award.
