Please see message below from the Department for Education (DfE)

Dear Colleagues,

We hope this finds you well.

The Department for Education is delighted to announce that we are expanding our fully-funded, accredited Level 3 Early Years SENCO training offer.

 An additional 2,000 places are available between now and August 2024, with particular focus on training SENCOs in areas currently underrepresented in training uptake, including the North East and North West of England.

This offer is part of the early years education recovery programme and will mean up to 7,000 SENCOs will be trained by August 2024.

Existing Early Years SENCOs with a Level 3 EY educator qualification, or those due to take up the role of SENCO, including childminders, are eligible for the training.
