Understanding the SEND Code of Practice and the Role of the INCO

Course
This two part course is for Early Years Practitioners who are in an INCO/SENCO role.
The aim of this course is to support you in growing your awareness of the concept of inclusion so that you can identify the key elements of the Inclusion Coordinator (INCO)/ Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO) role and understand essential record keeping involved in the writing of individual plans.
You will explore professional approaches and systems which promote the effective coordination of support, and be introduced to practical ideas aimed at making support effective and manageable.
You will also investigate the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) Code of Practice and its implications for practice and provision.
If you apply what you have learnt in this course you will be able to;

  • Explain the integral leadership role and key characteristics of an effective Inclusion Officer/Special Educational Needs Coordinator.
  • Identify ways to establish the inclusive ethos of a setting.
  • Identify assessment and support processes from other professionals that are right for your setting and your children.
  • Identify opportunities for co-production with families and demonstrate a person-centred approach.
