The National Award for SEN Coordination (NASENCO) is a statutory requirement for all SENCOs appointed new to role from September 2008 and is an excellent opportunity for professional development for experienced SENCOs.  The NASENCO Award is provided in partnership with BPN and Bath Spa University and awards 60 course credits at level 7 (Master’s)

The NASENCO programme is delivered in partnership with the School of Education’s CPD Department at Bath Spa University (BSU). It incorporates the Postgraduate Certificate in Inclusive Education from their Professional Master’s Programme, worth the first 60 credits towards a Master’s (MA) degree.
