Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU) is delighted to announce it has been recognised as a high quality provider of The National Award for Special Educational Needs Co-ordination (NA-SENCO).

Introduced at BGU in 2017, this masters-level course provides focused, high-quality professional development for teachers who lead the education of pupils with special educational needs in schools.

The course has now been awarded the NA-SENCO Quality Mark, a nationally recognised accreditation only given to providers who offer the highest standards of teaching and learning in how to lead the education of pupils with special educational needs.

Steve McNichol, Senior Lecturer in the School of Teacher Development at BGU, expressed his delight at seeing the hard-work of both the academics and students recognised:

“Developing and growing the NA-SENCO at BGU has been an incredible experience and I am very proud of the quality of provision we are able to offer. I am delighted that we are now recognised as one of the leading providers of this award in the UK and look forward to seeing how we can continue to enhance the development of school SENCOs across the region.”
