Our Partners


The number of AET Training Partners has been growing rapidly even during the pandemic.


More and more local authorities recognise the urgent need for a 360° autism strategy in local education settings to support the growing number of autistic children and young people, and choose the sector-leader autism education programme to respond to this need.


Find out how some of our partners, including Birmingham, Leicestershire and Lincolnshire County Councils, achieve outstanding results with the AET Programme from an impact study published by the Institute of Public Care, Oxford Brookes University. 

Please find below the list of our current licence holders and testimonials from some of our Training Partners.

“The AET programme focuses on autism as a difference not a deficit. It puts the child and young person at the heart of the process. It is their voice that is heard through the training. The programme is evidence-based and offers a framework for schools to include in their SEN Information Report.

Evaluations indicate that 98 per cent of those attending strongly agree that the training will have a positive impact on practice and their ability to support children with autism. Demand for the training continues to be high.”

Pamela Simpson, Assistant Team Manager, Communication and Autism Team,

Birmingham County Council


“As a National Teaching School that operates beyond our alliance boundary, we recognised the tremendous potential and seized the opportunity of becoming an AET partner.

The AET frameworks and standards alongside the meticulous training programmes have added real value to our work in supporting schools. To be a partner in delivering and developing a licenced, quality assured, national programme developed by specialists in the field of autism education gives our trainers and all of our stakeholders pride and confidence in the integrity, structure and effectiveness of the support and advice we provide.”

Gary Morrissey, Teaching School Director at The Bridge London
