About your Course

The Autism Awareness online course aims to develop your understanding of the diverse condition of autism and gives practical suggestions when working with individuals with autism.

This online course will help you to understand the causes of autism and the behaviours associated with this learning disability.

This can prove invaluable in a classroom setting as children with autism can feel isolated or can appear to be acting out.

By raising your understanding of autism and the many challenges the disability can cause, you can more effectively support these individuals. This can make all the difference to the child and as such, these skills are in great demand.

This course will set you on the path to becoming a learning support assistant or a dedicated special educational needs assistant.

Getting Started

This Autism Awareness online course will give you insight into autism, its causes and how to support children who live with this learning disability.

This online course will give you a unique perspective and valuable set of skills enabling you to work with children with autism in a school setting.

From here you can either qualify as a learning support teaching assistant or seek employment as a teaching assistant.

Regardless, your knowledge will make you an appealing candidate.

You can enrol and start your learning the very same day via our online portal. That means you don’t have to choose between your education and your existing commitments.

On completion of your course, you will receive two certificates:

Certificate 1 is issued by Stonebridge Associated Colleges: Autism Awareness Diploma

The Learner Unit Summary may be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this subject. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 3 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of demand/complexity involved in successful completion by the learner.

The course itself has been designed Stonebridge Associated Colleges to meet specific learners’ and/or employers’ requirements which cannot be satisfied through current regulated qualifications. The Quality Licence Scheme endorsement involves robust and rigorous quality audits by external auditors to ensure quality is continually met. A review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.

The Quality Licence Scheme is part of the Skills and Education Group, a charitable organisation that unites education and skills-orientated organisations that share similar values and objectives. With more than 100 years of collective experience, the Skills and Education Group’s strategic partnerships create opportunities to inform, influence and represent the wider education and skills sector.
