New to the role of ALNCO – a step by step approach to developing the role in your school.

The role of the ALNCO is set out in Chapter 8 of The Additional Learning Needs Code for Wales 2021. This outlines the “musts” and “shoulds” of the role but what does this look like in a busy working week within a school.

During this session, Lorraine will offer a step-by-step guide to what the ALN Code states is the role whilst offering support and guidance as to what this might look like in practice.

The role can also feel very lonely and challenging at times and this session will give you an opportunity to network with other new to role or aspiring ALNCOs and pick up strategies and tools that are being used in schools to support you.
