The National Autistic Society is offering a new series of training courses for professionals who work with pupils with autism aged five to 16. The training has been developed by the Autism Education Trust (AET).

We are the training 'hub' for this programme in south east England. This map will show the areas covered by the hub. 

The training programme includes a series of courses.  Courses can be run in-house at your school or we hold open access training events at various venues across the south-east region. In-house training is a great option if you have a number of people who wish to attend the training, saving you time and money.
