    What does it take for a teacher to become a Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator?

    Experience of teaching or working with children with additional needs, a few years of teaching under your belt and perhaps a vacancy at the right time.

    Realistically, it depends on your school, if it is a small school then you have more chance of becoming a SENCO earlier on in your career, if it is a large school you will probably have more children with additional needs in your school, so you will get more experience but downside, the SENCO role may already by taken by someone else more qualified/experienced in the role.
