A post 16 autism competency framework for people working with young people on the autism spectrum.
Tip – the competency framework are best used when you download the document (not viewed in your browser) and work through the competency framework using Adobe Acrobat Reader.
A professional competency framework has been developed by the Autism Education Trust (AET) in collaboration with Ambitious about Autism and consultants with expertise in autism. The framework sets out the knowledge and skills that are required for professionals in settings working with learners on the autism spectrum.
Andrew Chiffers – Core writer, Ian Adam Bellamy – Project officer, Viv Berkeley – Project adviser, Yola Jacobsen – Project manager, Alison O’Brien – Core writer, Genium — Design team and Sarah Hendrickx — AET post 16 adviser.
The framework is presented as a self-evaluation tool that practitioners can use to rate their current practice and understanding against a set of descriptors (knowledge, skills, personal qualities). Feedback should inform practitioners’ professional development plans and content of any future training.
