Autism Education Trust Training

Buckinghamshire Council Early Years Service are delighted to have been awarded the Autism Education Trust Early Years Training licence for the South East. The AET training is a modular based training programme for practitioners and all those working in Early Years settings. In addition to the training and to support practitioners further the AET offers

  • good practice standards against which early years settings can audit their practice and plan improvement
  • competency frameworks for practitioners  to assess their practice and to plan CPD
  • A range of practical resources

The training modules for Early Years are:

  • Making Sense of Autism - basic autism awareness training for all staff in all early years settings, whether or not they work directly with children with autism.
  • Good Autism Practice – designed to support all practitioners working directly with children on the autism spectrum to develop their practice.
  • Extending Good Autism Practice - designed to build on the learning developed through ‘good autism practice’ by enabling delegates to deepen their understanding of autism and the implications for practice.
  • Leading Good Autism Practice - designed for staff who have a leadership role that includes responsibility for developing provision for children on the autism spectrum within an early years setting.

Details of module availability and how to book can be accessed through CPD Online 

If you are a Buckinghamshire Early Years setting and have a child who has autism attending your setting, we may be able to deliver the Making Sense of Autism to all practitioners at your setting as part of our support. To find out more about this please discuss with your Key Contact or SEND Advisor or email earlyyearssend@buckingahsmire.gov.uk
