A Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) requires devotion and committment. Almost all schools need a SENCO, who mostly work wIth and in coordination with other teachers and parents. The challenging responsibilities of SENCO demands a sincere belief that there is hope and success in all human endeavours. A good way to find out is to see if there are any ways to volunteer in your community as an aid, assistant, or intern. UK's Direct. Gov provides a wealth of information both about what it takes and how to become a SENCO at http://www. sen-for-schools. co. uk/resources/senco-hndbkOSoct. html.
