SEND strategic leadership support

Our team has an extensive range of experience in the field of SEND, school leadership and improving schools. We can provide bespoke support, advice and development to schools, settings, colleges, employers, training providers and organisations that work with children and young people with SEND.

SENCO National Professional Qualification

From September 2024 the NASENCo qualification will be replaced by the SENCO NPQ. This is part of the DfE’s SEND and Alternative Provision Improvement Plan.

SENCOs who have already obtained the NASENCO do not need to complete the SENCO NPQ.  SENCOs appointed before 1 September 2009 are not required to take the NPQ, but will be expected to ensure compliance with the regulations.

From September 2024, all SENCOs and aspiring SENCOs will need to:

  • take the NPQ if they have not completed or started the NASENCO
  • complete training within 3 years of appointment - schools and SENCOs must make sure they enrol on training that will meet this requirement

We will update this page once we have further details of how this course can be accessed in Devon.
