The Level 4 Certificate in Supporting the Learning of Learners with Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) qualification recognises the skills developed by experienced learning support professionals such as Higher Level Teaching Assistants and senior Learning Support Assistants who are both working with learners themselves and supporting other staff to provide effective support to learners with special educational needs and disability. It has been developed with the support of organisations supporting the professional development of teachers and learning support staff.

The objective of the qualification is to extend the skills of those involved in providing support to learners with SEND, in order to improve their own practice and help develop that of their colleagues. In order to enter for this qualification, learners must have considerable experience of supporting the learning of learners with SEND and be working in a role where they will be able to put into practice the skills that they are required to evidence for the qualification.

Successful learners may choose to progress to Level 4 Education and Training qualifications or to Higher Education. They may also progress to management roles within learning support. There are no direct relationships between this and other frameworks. However, the skills and knowledge covered are consistent with the requirements of the 2014 SEND Code of Practice.

The course is 30 credits and will take between 120 and 200 guided learning hours. There are 7 units and you will undertake a mixture of assessments including case studies, reports and practical assessments, some of which will be observed. You will also complete an action research project in a related subject which will be agreed with your assessor. You will have a taught session per unit, usually delivered one to one over Zoom, or this may be face to face when the current situation eases further.
