SENCO skills audit

Download the skills audit to help evaluate the skills and knowledge needed to fulfil the responsibilities of a SENCO

The audit will help you determine the skills and responsibilities required of SENCOs to:

  • lead strategic SEND provision in different contexts
  • work in collaboration with other colleagues and external agencies
  • evaluate the strength of SEND systems
  • improve learning outcomes for all pupils.

It includes skills and effective behaviours adapted from the learning outcomes of theĀ National Award for Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO).

There is also a column to provide an example of when you have demonstrated each skill as part of your role.
