The Autism Trust UK


The Vocational Training Centre gives people who are on the autism spectrum the chance to gain work experience in a real work environment, yet also provides specialised support and encouragement to gain skills. 

The shop, gallery and office is the “hub” of The Autism Trust and the vocational & LifeSkills training we provide. 

  • Bespoke work experience sessions. To gain practical work skills in a real working environment.
  • Long term Supported Work Scheme. Following completion of one or more of our in-house employability courses, individuals who are not in employment can join this scheme to help retain and further hone their skills in our supportive real working environment.

These are held at the training centre in Camberley, Surrey.
