SENCO Induction Pack published
The National Award for SENCO Providers Group (Leading Learning for Special Educational Needs and Disability CiC), as part of Whole School SEND and funded by the DfE, has developed an Induction Pack aimed at new and aspiring SENCOs. This pack is now available on the SEND Gateway.
The aim of the pack is to support SENCOs at the start of their journey, before they complete the NASENCO qualification, but it is also likely to prove useful for more experienced SENCOs as a quick reference tool. It contains useful summaries of information and areas for SENCOs to consider, as well as many references and links to documents and websites. The pack has been trialled with new and experienced SENCOs and feedback has been very positive.
You can download the SENCO Induction Pack from the SEND Gateway and either read it on screen (so the links are clickable) or if you prefer, print it out so that you have it to hand.
