Have you heard about the new NPQ for SENCOs?

New for spring 2024, the NPQ for SENCOs is the first NPQ to be designed for Special Educational Needs Co-ordinators.

This new NPQ is part of the NPQ framework and replaces the NASENCO qualification.

Over 18-months, participants become an expert leader of special educational needs and disabilities and learn how they can build an inclusive culture in your school where all pupils can succeed. The NPQ for SENCOs is mandatory for SENCOs. SENCOs will need to complete this qualification within the first three years in the role. If they have already obtained the NASENCO qualification, they do not need to complete the NPQ for SENCOs.

Fully funded for autumn 2024.

NPQ SENCO places are fully funded for those working in public schools in England. But don’t miss out!

Autumn 2024 is currently the only cohort to be fully funded by the Department for Education.

Delivered in partnership with Ambition Institute
In partnership with Ambition Institute, NPQ for SENCOs has been designed with flexibility in mind.

The content is delivered through blended learning. This includes a mix of real-time, interactive online sessions and self-guided modules you complete in participants complete in their own time.

We're proud to be delivering this programme across Northamptonshire.
