Achievement for All (AfA) have been asked by the Department for
Education (DfE) to review the SEN co-ordination function in the
early years and post-16 sectors and to explore the possibility of
extending the National Award for SEN Co-ordination to those
undertaking the SENCO role in early years or FE.
AfA have created four surveys aimed at Area SENCOs in local
authorities and those fulfilling the SENCO role in Early Years and
Further Education. There is an additional survey for FE, aimed at
managers. The deadline for return is 14th October.
