The National SENCO Workload Survey

News - 17 Sep 2018

The 2018 National SENCO workload survey is a joint research project between the NEU, nasen and Bath Spa University.

The National SENCO Workload Survey

 This survey aims to further explore:

• The workload undertaken by SENCOs

• The key activities of the SENCO role

• How SENCOs manage their role within their settings

• Variations in time allocated to the role

• Wider support for the SENCO role.

Please follow the link to complete the survey. The survey takes approximately 20 minutes to complete. We would like to inform you that participation is voluntary and you can withdraw at anytime, without reason. 

All responses to the survey are contributed anonymously. You will not be required to provide your name or any identifying information as part of the survey. Responses will be collated for analysis and written up, and will only be accessible to the Research team.  Individual data will not be shared with anyone outside of the research team.

We will publish our findings and make recommendations later in the year. The report will be published by the NEU and will be disseminated online as well as to a number of organisations including the DfE and Ofsted.

The survey will be open from 17th September until 5th October.

Thank you for your time in completing this survey. Your responses will help us understand more about the complexities and demands of the SENCO role, and help us make recommendations for the future.
