This is the Level 3 Early Years SENCO qualification specification published by the DfE. It is to be used to form the basis of L3 qualifications offered by awarding bodies; it forms the minimum criteria, and some awarding bodies will offer courses that cover more content.
Since qualification and the completion of the dyslexia module within this course I have gained a great deal of information and knowledge that has given me a deeper understanding of what is involved in gathering information and delivering specialised interventions successfully.
Every morning we have all teachers and attending students complete a ‘reading aloud’ activity. Some students choose to read aloud; lots don’t choose to. We record on a sheet who does choose to read. If students don’t want to read, they are able to sit and doodle/colour in mandalas etc.
Two members of staff trained. One as a lead practitioner and one as a learning mentor. This was three full days training. Across two schools we do three half day sessions, currently running with six children.
