Each workshop will focus on a different aspect of being a SENCo and provide practical training on each aspect. The course will build on the knowledge and existing training and equip delegates with a wide range of skills.

With increasing demands on the role of an Early Years SENCo this series of workshops will be relevant to all in the sector, regardless of experience. Delegates will have an opportunity to build a range of skills by attending any or all 12 of these workshops.
