Entry requirements
Entry requirements
The minimum entry requirements you'll need to get on to this course.

Details
Applicants should normally have at least a second-class honours degree. Applicants will also have either Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) for teaching in schools or have Qualified Teacher of Learning and Skills (QTLS) for teaching in post-compulsory education, or EYTS for teaching in Early Years. Following the course, those with EYTS, rather than QTS, will only be able to work as a SENCO in Early Years settings. Applicants will also need to have completed a satisfactory Induction Period in a school. Please note that, although it is not a requirement for entry on to the course, it is important, for the purposes of the assessment, that applicants are currently based in an educational working environment i.e. a school, virtual school, college or local authority, and have access to SEN related data. SENCOS currently employed in English state-maintained schools must complete their SENCO training within the first three years of their appointment. Due to its statutory nature, Recognition of Prior Learning for those not meeting the entry requirements will not apply for this course.
