Updated Professional Development Programme

Updated Professional Development Programme for Early Years and Schools

The most exciting news is the updates to our Early Years and Schools Professional Development Programme.

We have been working to ensure that all of our materials are in line with the latest research, and that they satisfy the strict standards of our Autistic Young Experts Panel and other stakeholders.

Co-operation and co-production are at the heart of everything we do and we are very pleased that our new materials reflect the expertise of all our partners (originally stakeholders).

Search for specific Training Modules and Resources to find out more about the updates.

We will be updating our post 16 materials in the coming months.

Our new improved website

We'd also like to introduce you to our brand-new website. We have been working to improve your AET experience online and we are very proud to announce our new accessibility toolbar – Recite me. You can explore the toolbar by clicking ‘Listen’ in the top right of the page, and use it to explore our resources and blog posts.

The use of fonts and design aspects are all included to ensure that our resources are as inclusive as possible.

Visit Accessibility if you’d like to read more about it.

The brand-new logo

To celebrate the launch of our updated materials, new website and expanded offers, and to mark a new era of a stronger AET, we decided to redesign our logo.

We wanted our new identity to express everything we are proud of and reflect the changes we have implemented. We asked Sam Chown-Ahern, artist and member of the AET Young Autistic Experts panel, to help us with this.
