Our specialist student support team work with experienced teaching professionals from Northampton College to help students on the autism spectrum to gain life and social skills within an academic environment, supporting each students individual journey to independence.

The 'Moving Forward' provision is a collaboration between the National Autistic Society (NAS) and Northampton College. It has been specifically personalised to support autistic students to overcome the barriers to learning and teach strategies to support independence, self-confidence and transition into the wider college or employment.

Northampton College understand that many autistic students find it difficult to access a mainstream college campus without specialist support and the right provision. For that reason, Northampton College work consistently in partnership with the National Autistic Society to provide an inclusive, autistic friendly campus with specialist student centred support.

It's different to school in lots of ways because it's smaller and quieter.
