Best Practice Network is an experienced and well-established provider of the National Award for SEN Co-ordination (NASENCO) with typically over 100 SENCOs or aspiring SENCOs starting the course with us each year. The qualification is mandatory for newly appointed SENCOs, but can also be excellent CPD for more experienced practitioners who want to refresh their knowledge and skills. Offered in partnership with Bath Spa University, the Award incorporates the Postgraduate Certificate in SEN Coordination from their Professional Master’s Programme, worth the first 60 credits towards a Master’s (MA) degree.
All our courses offer a flexible, work-based approach to SEND practitioners, with highly experienced tutors from Best Practice Network. However, in spring 2019 we are offering an added extra, collaborating on four regional programmes in Birmingham, London, Manchester and Milton Keynes with inspirational coaches and facilitators from Achievement for All, the leading not-for-profit organisation that works in partnership with early years settings, schools and colleges to improve outcomes for all children and young people vulnerable to underachievement regardless of background, challenge or need.
Feedback from participants is very positive: “Thank you for all of your support with the course. So happy that I have completed everything that I can. I think I am actually going to miss the challenge so although I never intended to do a full Masters, I am now about to sign up for another course to become an Autistic Leader with 20 more credits! I would definitely recommend this course to my fellow SENCOs,” says Nikki, a SENCO from Durham.
