About Autism Education Trust

What is the Autism Education Trust? The Autism Education Trust is a unique partnership supported by the DfE of over 25 major organisations working specifically on autism education across the voluntary, public and private sectors including 11 local authorities across England. What does the Autism Education do? The Autism Education Trust is dedicated to coordinating, supporting and promoting effective education practice for all children and young people on the autism spectrum. The AET now offers the largest national training programme for education based staff with over 40,000 staff being trained by the end of 2014. There are three separate programmes for schools, early years settings and post 16 provision. The programmes are delivered by 19 training hubs across England. There are three levels to each training programme: 1. General awareness for all staff 2. Practical approaches for staff working with young people with autism 3. Training for leaders who have a responsibility of coordinating and developing provision. In addition there are two free online resources for each of the three sectors: - National Autism Standards which allow provisions to self-review and are hyperlinked to resources. - A Competency Framework to guide professional development hyperlinked to resources. These are free to download from the EAT website which also contains many more resources Visit our website or contact us for further details.
