This book offers valuable insights into the role of the Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo) and aims to illustrate, evaluate and analyze the characteristics and practice of the SENCo role. This new edition has been updated to reflect changes in legislation and the framework for the National Award for SEN Coordination (NASC). Transforming the Role of the SENCO reflects the three areas of development of the NASC leaning outcomes: Professional Knowledge and Understanding; Leading and Coordinating Provision; and Personal and Professional Qualities. The book links directly to the NASC learning outcomes, whilst remaining both cutting edge and relevant to ‘real world’ practice. Key features of this second edition include: Updated content in light of the SEND Code of Practice 0 – 25 (2015); Contributions from thought leaders in the field of SEN and Inclusion; Vignettes offering clear, practical, and well theorized examples of the work of SENCos, based on conversations with stakeholders currently involved in the field. This is a key text for SENCos, particularly those undertaking the National Award for SEN Coordination, as well as for students studying SEN and Inclusion on other courses and modules who may aspire to the role of the SENCo.
