National charity Ambitious about Autism is delivering a staff development programme to support young people with autism to make the move from school to college.

Partnering with the National Association for Special Educational Needs (nasen) and the Association of Colleges, the one-day course is based on learning from the two-year Department for Education supported Finished at School programme which ran from 2013 to 2015.

Following a successful event at Grantham College, the Finished at School course will be holding a second event in the region at Derby College on 15 March.

The event is suitable for college, school and sixth form staff as well as Special Educational Needs Coordinators (SENCOs) and local authority transition leads.

The training provides clear actions and ideas which enable relevant staff and key partners to work together to improve the transition from schools to college for young people with autism.

The next course in the East Midlands is being held at The Roundhouse, Derby College on 15 March starting at 9am. Places are just £20 for the full day's training, including a copy of the Finished at School Guide and access to online modules. Click here to book your ticket.
