Autism Training (Post 16 Programme) – Tier 3 for Managers

For all staff who may take a leadership role that includes responsibility for developing provision for young people on the autism spectrum within a post 16 setting (including lead practitioners for autism; inclusion and/or curriculum managers and those who manage additional learning support).

The new SEND Code of Practice specifies that all professionals working in post-16 education settings should be prepared to support young people on the autism spectrum and all staff should have a basic awareness of autism and the needs of individuals.

Delivered by the highly experienced Babcock LDP autism team, the AET post 16 programme offers face-to-face training for professionals working with young people over the age of 16. The programme will form an essential part of your Continuing Professional Development and will play a key role in supporting your organisation to meet the needs of young people on the autism spectrum, ensuring progression and reducing NEETS.

Developed by the AET, the programme uses a range of teaching tools, such as video and problem-solving scenarios, to develop understanding. This AET programme is supported by the Department for Education.
