SEN Organisational Contexts (EFPM278)

30 credits

This is the first of two linked modules concerned with special educational needs co-ordination in schools and other educational settings. The general aim of this module and the second module - EFPM279 SEN: Leading on teaching and learning - is to equip you, as a Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO), to have the knowledge, understanding and skills to carry out this role effectively. Successful completion of EFPM278 andEFPM279, alongside meeting the SENCO Learning Outcomes through EFPM285, leads to the National Award for SEN Coordination. This module focuses on the organisational context for SEN in schools and other educational settings, for example, legislation, funding systems, national, local and setting level policy. Module EFPM279 SEN: Leading on teaching and learning is a co-requisite.
