NPQs for Special Educational Needs Co-ordinators (NPQ for SENCOs)

The NPQSENCO is an 18 month leadership level national professional qualification (NPQ) which will become the mandatory qualification for SENCOs from September 2024, replacing the NASENCO qualification. Teaching of the NPQ for SENCOs will begin in Autumn 2024.

The NPQ for SENCOs content framework sets out what participants should know and be able to do after completing the qualification.

Lead Providers are currently working on the curriculum models for this qualification. If you or a colleague are interested in completing a NPQSENDCO starting in Autumn 2024, please complete our NPQSENDCO Expression of Interest Form so that we can contact you in the Summer term with more information around our lead provider, funding and when the DfE portal will open for registrations.
