Petition Action

Require School SENCOs to be fully qualifiied for the role.

Petition Details

School senco's to be qualified before they take the role and they must have done in depth training on special educational needs. The current role can be filled by a person not qualified for the role and they have 3 years to qualify which is ridiculous.

Additional Information

Change the qualification a teacher needs to be a senco so that they must have in depth training on special educational needs as well as training on the paperwork they will have to complete whilst in the role and this training must be completed before they can hold the position. Abolish the current system that allows a teacher to train for the role whilst holding the role and take 3 yrs to qualify.
