Level 3 Early Years SENCO qualification


 Share

Recommended Posts

The DfE has published the Level 3 Early Years SENCO qualification specification. The qualifications developed from this specification are intended to support early years practitioners to gain accreditation for the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to perform the Early Years SENCO role effectively. The qualifications are not mandatory. This recommended specification has been designed by early years experts and stakeholders supported by the Department for Education (DfE).

The DfE has also published a Level 3 EY SENCO job description, which is intended as guidance for early years providers and practitioners to help clarify the role of the Early Years SENCO in non-maintained early years settings.

Yes, we posted that when it was published here, I was looking to see if I could find something that had some dates that would help you :)

I've had a response back from a SENCO specialist: "Like you I've seen the DfE information and as far as I'm aware it's up to Awarding Organisations to design the course to fit the specification then offer it to practitioners, I'm not sure about the timescale for this or if it will be face to face or online.  I'm concerned that the course isn't mandatory and that practitioners will probably need to fund it themselves."

I hope that is helpful :)

My SENCO is on long term sick leave and I suspect might not be back.   Once this is confirmed we shall need to replace on a permanent basis (currently we have someone standing in for this role so have temporary cover and we have worked together to ensure our SEND children are being covered but I think I might like (if its not too expensive) to get some formal training ie CACHE  lvl 3 if it's available but I am finding lots of the links mentioned in these posts and indeed on my google searches are just coming up as"page ot available" etc.    Is there such a course for everyone country wide or is it just like the emperor's we get told the training is there but it isn't?

I did L3 many  (many) years ago through cache, is it just old links coming up ?

When I did assessing years ago students could add the module as an option if they wanted.
