Senco Qualifications?


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi

Well feeling lazy and not done a search yet but wondered if anyone knew the answer to the following?

 

My "friend" on the committee has said it was queried by another comm member about the fact that we thought our supervisor and an ex- colleague (who left at Easter) coud be classed as Sencos. This comm member is from a school background and was under the impression that to be classed as senco that attending only local authority courses was not enough (think supervisor had to attend 4 out of 5 DIFFERENT senco courses). This comm member thought that supervisor needed to attend a course that was run by private firm and that LEA courses just made her SENCo aware.

 

Can anyone clarify for me?

 

Thanks.

This might be something that differs from LAs but in my area a named Senco has to have LA training which lasts 4-6 full days and I think that they have to have a level 3 also.

Thanks for that. Supervisor has attended all these courses. Think as thi particuar comm member works at a school (yes there are changes for SENCOs there) she tries to apply it at our pre-school. This member got me running around phoning OFSTED etc as she said that all parent helps had to be CRB checked.

Will pass this info onto my friend.

My county stopped SENCO training last year. I took over as SENCO at my setting and was told there was no training just the odd support meeting and documents to read. Not very helpful!

Whoa - tht's not good at all.

 

This post has got me thinking - I am our group SENCO - I attended three days training - which was all that was required at the time - haven't updated since - think I need to get some advice on this.
