This is a one-day NASUWT training course on autism in the workplace aimed at Local Association Officers, Equality Officers and Workplace Representatives.

This course will look at:

  • What is Autism? Realities and Myths;
  • Autism Issues at Work;
  • Making the Workplace more Autism-friendly; and
  • Autistic Workers, Carers and the Law.

This one-day briefing is for all Union Representatives, Local Association Officers, Equality Officers and members who want to find out more about the autistic spectrum (including Asperger’s syndrome) and become more confident in dealing with related issues in the workplace. The day will consist of a mixture of presentations and activities.

Please note – this briefing is not aimed at people whose work is with autistic children, but is for trade unionists who are organising and representing members in the workplace.
