Registration requirements for Additional Support Needs

Registration in Additional Support Needs (ASN) covers the 3 to 18 years age range.

To register in ASN you need to have current full registration in Primary or a Secondary (Subject).

You also need to hold an appropriate ASN award. This award will need to:

  • be equivalent to a minimum of 60 Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF) credit points
  • be at SCQF level 9 or above
  • have included courses/ modules with a sufficiently broad and general content to cover pupils with a range of additional support needs, for example the Postgraduate Certificate/Diploma in Inclusive Practice
  • have been completed (you should have received your award certificate) before starting your application for registration in ASN.

Probationary period

If you have not worked in an ASN capacity, you will be asked to complete a probationary period of a minimum of 20 days. You will complete this probation through the Flexible Route process.
