Categories: ,


A post 16 autism competency framework  for people working with young people on the autism spectrum.

Tip – the framework is best used when you download the document (not viewed in your browser) and work through them using Adobe Acrobat Reader.

The framework sets out the knowledge and skills that are required for professionals in settings working with learners on the autism spectrum.

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 AET 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.
