Aims of the course
As can be seen from the content, it is wide ranging and deals with most things which will come up if you are working in the Learning support Department of an independent school. There will be plenty of opportunity to ask specific questions.

What will they learn?
It is assumed that each school is unique as is each child whether they have learning differences or not. This course should give the newcomer the material to set up a successful department, the seasoned SENCO some different ideas to develop the department still further and everyone to discover more about the changes which will affect all of us in the years ahead.
