Special Educational Needs

At Next Level Learning we are keen to support young people with Special Educational Needs. All our staff have experience of working with SEN and many of them have additional training and qualifications to further support young people. Training opportunities in specialist areas are accessed by tutors throughout the year, often delivered by our very own SENCo.

For a small one-off fee of £60 our SENCo can build a delivery plan unique to a child that supports the tutor in catering for specific individual learning needs. This will be done by unpicking the needs of a young person through the EHCP or reports and assessments provided by the referring school. Our SENCo will welcome information from referring schools SEN department to ensure we get maximum progress from our sessions.
