About the Level 3 Principles of Special Educational Needs RQF Certificate  

The term “special educational needs” or SEN is actually a legal definition referring to children who have learning problems and disabilities that make it harder for them to learn. Dedicated staff with expertise in the area can make a huge impact to how these children experience learning, social life and occupational training. Unsurprisingly, such staff are not easy to come by.

At the same time teachers and assistants without adequate training find it difficult to cope with the challenges of SEN.

This is where this Level 3 Principles of Special Educational Needs course adds tremendous value. With modules on the development of children and young people, professional practice of SEN services, language and communication needs, the qualification aids teachers and assistants to understand how to support children and young people with a range of disabilities to achieve their full learning potential.

This course is offered entirely online making it an excellent option for full-time professionals, or those that need to fit study time around family commitments. Thanks to our online learning platform you can access your course from anywhere giving you flexibility to study whenever you want.

 

Who should study this course?

Anyone interacting with SEN children, from foster families to social workers, nursery assistants and teachers can benefit from this distance learning course. Beyond the qualification, the course aims to equip teachers with the skills and resources necessary to help SEN students achieve.
