World Autism Awareness Week


This year the National Autistic Society’s World Autism Awareness Week took place 27 March to 2nd April


To mark and support this year’s campaign #UntilEveryoneUnderstands we created a free teaching resource called Top Teaching Tips: Students With ASD.


Did you know you don’t need any specific SEND qualifications to work in SEND education? What you do need is to be even more prepared, super flexible and creative as SEND teaching environments can be very challenging and unpredictable. However, classes are often smaller so you can build deeper and more meaningful relationships with students.

In other words, the rewards can be amazing; reaching a pupil who’s never previously engaged at school or teaching life skills that can help on a daily basis, makes all the hard work worth it.


See the range of SEND teaching jobs and SEND teaching assistant jobs we’ve got all over the country.


Find out more about (and how you can support) the brilliant work the National Autistic Society does all year round as well as at this time of year.
