Autism Education Trust Post 16 Training

Making Sense of Autism
Post 16 Programme

This is an awareness raising module for everyone involved in the Post 16 sector who would benefit from having an understanding of autism. This includes teaching and support staff, office staff, caterers, transport staff, governors, employers, and careers advisors.
The module provides an introduction to autism and the reasonable adjustments that need to be considered when working with autistic learners.

Following the training, delegates will:

• Have enhanced your understanding and awareness of autism and the three areas of difference that affect autistic learners.
• Be equipped with the knowledge you need to begin to make reasonable adjustments in the way you support autistic learners.
• Approach autism as a difference and celebrate the strengths of the learner.
• Understand how three areas of difference can affect autistic learners.
• Appreciate how important it is to listen to and learn from the perspectives of autistic learners and to get to know the learner as an individual.
• Reflect on and implement reasonable adjustments to support autistic learners you work with.
The initial training is 2 hours and can be delivered as a twilight session or as part of an inset day. There is then a follow up session with the trainer to support action planning based on the AET Post 16 Standards Framework, which is an improvement tool. (
