Autism awareness

Develop knowledge, skills and good practice around autism

Studies indicate that around 700,000 people in the UK may be on the autism spectrum – but most young autistic people are unhappy in education and just 16% of autistic adults are in full time employment. 

This shows there is a need for teachers, trainers, managers and HR professionals to develop the knowledge and skills to support autistic individuals to reach their full potential. 

Our course can help staff to understand and empower autistic people – and is suitable for those working in education, training or any workplace.
