AET Post 16 Competency Framework 2018

The framework sets out the knowledge and skills that are required for professionals in settings working with autistic pupils.

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.

The development of this framework has been carried out in close collaboration with the development of the AET post 16 autism standards as well as the Post 16 Training

This 2018 competency framework has been developed by Genium for the Autism Education Trust (AET)  in collaboration and consolation with the AET post 16 leadership group.

The original professional competency framework has been developed by the Autism Education Trust (AET)  in collaboration with Ambitious about Autism and consultants with expertise in autism.
