Established more than 10 years ago, a new version of the casework award will be available through nasen. This BTEC is a unique course designed for those working in a local authority SEND service or information advice and support service. Candidates will be managing, co-ordinating or supporting the co-production with children, young people, parents and/or carers of the education, health and care needs assessment process. A key feature of the programme is that it provides professional accreditation of work-based knowledge and skills, within the context of the 2014 SEND reforms. The course will continue to be led by Ian Palmer.
