Achievement for All has joined forces with Best Practice Network (BPN), the organisation that aims to make a difference to children by developing skilled and fulfilled education professionals in schools, early years settings and other organisation.

Each year, BPN support over 100 SENCOs to gain the National Award for SEN Coordination programme and we are working with them to run a London-based programme.

The National Award for SEN Coordination is a six-day programme delivered in partnership with the School of Education’s CPD Department at Bath Spa University (BSU). It incorporates the Postgraduate Certificate in Inclusive Education from their Professional Masters Programme, worth the first 60 credits towards a Masters (MA) degree.

Participants will have four school terms within which to submit their academic assignments and demonstrate that they meet the 49 specified learning outcomes.

To complete the programme participants will be expected to:

  • Attend six face-to-face day sessions delivered by BPN and AfA specialists to engage in learning, share good practice and practice key skills

  • Write two assignments that add up to 60 credits

  • Complete an e-portfolio to ensure that documentary evidence is provided for any learning outcomes not covered elsewhere

  • Invest time in personal study - reading, research and on-going reflection on practice will be required

  • Liaise with their group and academic tutor (a personal tutor will also support them from start to finish)

The cost of the six-day programme, in association with Achievement for All, is £1,795 +VAT
