The purpose of the Autism Education Trust (AET) is to improve the education of children and young people with autism.
To achieve this, the AET:

  • Develops and delivers training and a range of materials for early years, school and post 16 educational settings.
  • Develops and disseminates information on educational practice.
  • Provides an interface between users, practitioners and policy makers in respect of educational practice.
  • Actively engages with young people, parents/carers and practitioners to inform its work.
  • Undertakes research into effective practice.

The following AET training sessions are nationally recognised certified courses with training materials included.

AET Tier 1 training

Basic autism awareness training for all staff within school-age education settings, mainstream and specialist services.

The training will support participants to:

  • identify the four key areas of difference that need to be taken into account.
  • know the importance of understanding the individual pupil and their profile of strengths and areas for development.
  • identify the key areas to help pupils on the autism spectrum build positive relationships with staff, peers, families and people in their community.
  • develop an awareness of the sensory and communication differences that pupils may experience.

AET Tier 2 training

A full day course providing practical knowledge, hands-on tools and techniques for all practitioners working directly with school-age pupils (aged 5-16) on the autism spectrum, in both mainstream and specialist services.

Tier 1 training is not required for this course.

The training will:

  • enable practitioners to develop their knowledge and understanding of good autism practice.
  • provide guidelines and activities to support practitioners, allowing them to reflect on, and improve their own practice.

AET Tier 3 training

This one day session is designed for staff who have a leadership role that includes responsibility for developing provision for pupils on the autism spectrum within a school setting.

It will bring lead practitioners from a range of organisations together to discuss, share and develop practice and understanding.

It is suitable for practitioners working with school-age pupils on the autism spectrum in both mainstream and specialist services.

The training will:

  • enhance delegate’s knowledge and understanding of good autism practice.
  • help delegates to question, evaluate and develop autism practice within their setting.
  • provide delegates with the tools to audit staff skills and identify training needs.
