CPD Training Courses running in venues throughout Cornwall & Devon



The Learning Institute, in partnership with CAPH and Fosse Way Special School are pleased to offer this new autism training which has been specifically designed by the Autism Education Trust for teachers and support staff working with children and young people aged 5-16. The development of this training has been funded by the Department for Education and is now ready to be rolled out in Cornwall!

The programme is available at three different levels.

Level 1 is a whole-school programme of autism which is suitable for teachers and support staff. This 1.5 hour training is FREE when schools host the training for 25+ colleagues, which could include staff from surrounding schools. This training is an ideal staff meeting or twilight session.

Level 2 training is designed to support all staff working directly with pupils with autism in all types of educational settings for 5-16 year olds. This is a single day of training.

For more information: AET Level 2 Flyer

Level 3 training is designed for individuals who already have some knowledge of the autism spectrum and that they wish to develop this further. Individuals may have a lead role or responsibility for autism within their school or setting. This is two full days of training.
