As experienced practitioners in a range of contexts, we are acutely aware of how lonely the role of a SENCO can be. So we wanted to create a cost-effective bespoke service for SENCOs and SEND Leaders to access, as and when they need it. For some settings that might be a one-off to discuss a specific issue, for others it may be mean an hour every half term. Each setting and leader is unique.
Our process: we have invested time into thinking how best to offer a tailored and personalised service. The diagram below reflects our approach:
- E-coaching (i.e. via Skype) £60/hour
- Face-to-face coaching: dependent on location. Once you have clarified the commission remit, we will send you a quote before proceeding.
This service is currently being registered with the Intellectual Property Office.
“It is such a privilege to support the leadership development of SENCOs. Coaching is a dynamic process that empowers the SENCO to find their own solutions, because they are best placed to know their local circumstances, children, families and community. Our role is simply to facilitate their reflective growth. We look forward to working with many of you in the near future.”
