The Autism Trust UK

The Autism Trust feels very privileged to be able to offer our individuals with an autism spectrum condition, a chance to take recognized courses in 'Employability' in a real 'live' working environment.

'The Employability qualifications provides a framework for developing and recognising general employability skills. They are suitable for use with post-16 learners and for SEN sectors.

ASDAN was given full endorsement for the Employability qualifications by Asset Skills, the Sector Skills Council which had responsibility for Employability skills and qualifications. ASDAN featured in a report commissioned by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and UKES which reviewed the impact of generic Employability qualifications.
