This full day course is being subsidised by NYCC and the AET and places can be booked at a reduced rate of £15 per person (normally £95). 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)
"The training is divided into four sections: Section 1 The individual - every young person is unique. Knowing the young person, understanding how their autism affects them and building on strengths will support positive outcomes. Section 2 Building relationships - Creating strong partnerships with the young person, their family and those who are important to their future life will make a big difference to both progress and sense of well-being.Section 3 Curriculums and learning - a meaningful and relevant curriculum that addresses the aspirations of the young person and takes account of their individual needs and skills will facilitate a successful transition to adult life. Section 4 Enabling participation - Young people will learn and succeed in enabling environments in which their experiences respond to their individual needs and effective support is provided to enable them to access a wide range of pathways in life beyond college."
The training will: enhance your knowledge and understanding of good autism practice; help you to question, evaluate and develop autism practice within your setting; provide you with the tools to audit staff skills and identify training needs; develop your skills and knowledge so that your organisation is able to meet and then exceed the requirements of external reviewers such as Ofsted and is compliant with legislative requirements.
