Autism and Learning Disability Training now Mandatory


Autism and learning disability training has now become mandatory, by law, for ALL regulated services, “Regulations under this section must require service providers to ensure that each person working for the purpose of the regulated activities carried on by them receives training on learning disability and autism which is appropriate to the person’s role.”  Click here to view the legislation directly.

 

 At a national and regional level, asset based, mandatory training on learning disability and autism is required across the UK and training standards are set within the “Core Capabilities Framework for Supporting Autistic people“,  Autism Capabilities Framework published by Department of Health and Social Care.  This framework has been further enhanced by Greater Manchester’s Core Capabilities Autism Training Framework. This is to ensure suitable, and asset based, lived experience training sessions are delivered to providers, which will genuinely enhance the quality of services you provide. 


Please NOTE - Every booking made will provide a parent/carer training FREE of CHARGE.

 

Tier 1  - Mandatory Training on Learning Disability and Autism now applies to people working in health and social care, with responsibility for providing care and support for an autistic person or autistic people, but who could seek support from others for complex management or complex decision-making. Suitable for Health and Social Care services policing, housing, public services. education, custodial care, probation service transport, careers, employment or benefit services, Tier 1 would include front of-house and reception staff and would be relevant to an introductory autism training session. Tier 1 is also likely to be helpful to autistic people and their families, friends and care givers and aims to enhance understanding, knowledge, skills, and confidence.


Tier 1 - Mandatory Training on Learning Disability and Autism for Providers can be completed within 3-4 hours. Autizma are committed to improving lives and enhancing service provision. We have therefore made available a time limited offer to enable providers to keep up to date with changes in practice and legislation.

 

Tier 2 - Training includes Tier 1 material, so individuals only need to do one training package either Tier 1 or Tier 2, whichever is most appropriate to their role. Tiers 2 and 3 provides coverage of capabilities in greater breadth and depth. Please note Tier 3 will be available soon.  

 

Tier 2 - Mandatory Training on Learning Disability and Autism for Providers now applies to people working in health, social care, with responsibility for providing care and support for an autistic person or autistic people, but who could seek support from others for complex management or complex decision-making. Suitable for providers who are providing services for people with autism and learning disabilities. This Tier is suitable for health and social care services, frontline care staff and people in other roles, such as, care homes, domiciliary care, education providers and housing services. Tier 2 is also likely to be helpful to autistic people and their families, friends and care givers and aims to enhance understanding, knowledge, skills, and confidence to support effective planning of their current and future needs. 

 

Tier 2 Mandatory Provider Training on Learning Disability and Autism can be completed within 8 hours over two short sessions. And due to the nature of our work and the changes in legislation, Autizma are committed to improving lives and enhancing service provision.
