The Autism Education Trust (AET) training and support programme is now in its sixth year. There have been two earlier rounds of the Programme – the AET Programme 2011-2013, and the AET Programme 2013-2015. The AET Programme 2011-13 established a hubs training model and introduced school years training for all school staff working with children and young people with autism. The 2013-15 Programme involved the development of new Early Years (EY) and Post-16 (P-16) training materials for workforces and settings supporting EY and P-16 children and young people with autism. The Programme consisted of three tiers of training which were delivered via four EY and four P-16 training hubs. The 2013-15 Programme also involved the development and roll-out of National Standards and Competency Frameworks for EY and P-16 settings. In addition, guides for parents and carers on working with their children’s schools were produced.
