Qureshi, S. (2015) SENCOs: changemakers in their settings. Poster presented to: 6th Annual School of Education Research Student Conference, The University of Northampton, School of Education, 26-27 June 2015. (Unpublished)
This doctoral research project examines the evolving nature of the professional identity of Special Educational Needs Coordinators (SENCOs). SENCOs are primarily responsible for coordinating the provision and support of children with Special Educational Needs (SEN) in mainstream English primary schools. The focus of the study is the SENCO-teacher dynamic, and the nature of change in relation to the manner in which SENCOs support teachers' practices. Data is gathered through questionnaires and interviews. Thematic analysis is applied, and qualitative results are presented through the use of vignettes.
