Hi all! I'm pretty new to the whole teaching game and I was just wanting some advice on becoming SENDCO. I'm currently working long term supply cover in a Special Needs School and I'm wanting to take my first steps towards becoming SENDCO. I'm going into my third year of teaching and I'm hoping to either stay on at the school or to move on to another SEN School/ A SEN base in a mainstream school. How long do I need to be in teaching before I even consider applying? Do I need additional qualifications or are they just desirable? I feel my age is going to be a big issue in this step as I'm incredibly young and I feel I won't be taken seriously when it comes to interviews. Any tips? I hope you're all having a lovely Friday!
