Our CPD courses are designed for teachers and teaching assistants who support children with special educational needs. The course content is online, which means that you can start learning as soon as you enrol, anywhere at any time.
The online SEN courses are blended with tutor support, so you receive human support and specialist guidance, too. You’ll be assigned your personal tutor when you enrol. (More about tutor support)

Our courses are designed to be user-friendly and engaging, with quizzes, animations and touches of humour. Their content is written, and updated regularly, by SEN specialists and educational psychologists.
They’re outcome-focused – helping you to gain an improved understanding of your learners, so that you can support your learners to achieve improved outcomes.
Resources help you to enhance your learning further, and support you as you develop your practice.
Forums give you an opportunity to take part in discussions and share experiences and best practice with others.
Each course has four sections:
Learn about the special need specific to the course
Learn to assess student needs and set three SMART goals for a learner you support
Learn about evidence-based strategies and choose those that will help you achieve your goals
- Case studies
View real life videos of interventions in practice
To complete the course, you need to meet the course requirements:
- work through the whole of the course, including any activities and quizzes
- write 3 SMART goals to achieve with a learner or learners you support
- choose the interventions that you’ll make to achieve the goals you set
- make contributions to forums
When you’ve met the course requirements, your tutor will issue you with a certificate of completion.
