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.

 

What happens after the course?

Upon completion you can seek employment in one of many occupational areas such as:

• SEN Teaching Assistant

• Teaching Assistant

• Foster Carer

• Children and Families Support Worker

• Learning Mentor

With further study, learners could become a fully qualified SEN or mainstream teacher, or you may be interested in related careers that would require further study, including:

• Communication Support Worker

• Early Years Tutor

• Higher Level Teaching Assistant

• Portage Home Visitor

• Primary School Teacher.

 

Placement information

This certification does not require a placement.  Assessment will be conducted through a portfolio of evidence and it is designed to be accessible and inclusive.

Would a 19+ Advanced Learner Loan make any difference to my course?

Yes, when you study using this kind of funding, "Dimensions Training Solutions" deliver your course and it does offer considerably more than the same one without the 19+ funding loan.

Six Employability and Independent Learning Skills (EILS) modules are embedded in the content of your course: Maths, English, Digital Life Skills, Confidence, Resilience and Meeting Deadlines.

You can choose to study a further four: Workplace Ready, Initiative, Teamwork and Problem Solving. These are all designed to boost your personal skill level and help your career progression.

Additional personal support

A Student Support Officer (SSO) will be assigned to you, so you have a single point of contact throughout your course to support you with any admin issues.

Dimensions Training Solutions regularly update the SFA with details of study hours, and evidence of learning, in order to responsibly account for your course funding.

You will have an Individual Learning Plan with a set "finish date" and your SSO is there to encourage and help you stay on course. This is in addition to your Assessor, who assesses your work and provides personal constructive feedback.
