Course summary

Our Autism PGCert is designed to support your career progression, increase your subject knowledge and help you to make a positive difference to the autistic individuals you support and your organisation.

A flexible framework combines academic study with work-based action learning and action research, where your day-to-day professional activity informs your development through reflection and peer discussion.

The course is designed for professionals who work with children and young people who are on the autism spectrum and who wish to deepen their knowledge and develop their career progression. It will suit you whether you work in early years provision, a school, college, residential care, advisory, support or therapeutic services.

The Autism PGCert is a stand-alone qualification and its 60 credits count as one-third of a master’s degree.

Flexible work-based learning enables you to fit studying around your existing work or voluntary commitments. You will spend 10 Saturdays during the year studying at our Brighton, Falmer campus - six half day and four whole day sessions.

Teaching and mentoring is delivered by a successful teaching team with an outstanding national reputation and comprehensive research profile that informs and advances course content.
