Autism Awareness Training

Are you looking to increase your awareness of Autism or Asperger Syndrome? Are you an employer, provider, professional or individual who would like to know more or  refresh your knowledge of autism?

Our training has been specially designed to give an insight into the challenges faced by individuals with autism and how you can make a difference by changing your approach or sharing your knowledge.

Our Autism Awareness Sessions are an online training event, delivered on zoom with interaction with tutor, group discussions and engagement of learners.

Step Forward Project

Funded under the PEAT project in partnership with Wakefield Council, our Step forward project helps to support individuals into education or employment. 

We provide one to one sessions, social groups and job club opportunities in local areas! Our sessions are aimed at overcoming barriers, self-confidence, self-awareness, progression and pathways for development. We  deliver sessions on assertiveness, access to communities, team building, friendship development as well as working with others. The aim of the programme is that individuals have overcome their own barriers and are able to then transfer their own experiences and knowledge to support others out in the community, whilst supporting them to develop employability skills and confidence going forward.
