Provision of high quality autism training for all school staff
Decision Maker: Director of Children and Families
Decision status: Recommendations Approved
Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: No
The approach to providing all school staff
with a high level of training in relation to autism in line with
the commitment within the all-age autism strategy is approved. The
Council engages the accredited regional hub of the Autism Education
Trust (AET) to deliver high quality professional development to all
of Herefordshire’s schools over a three year period.
The cost of the programme will be £75,000 over the three-year period. A sum of £70,000 has been set aside in the Council’s budget to support the implementation and promotion of the Herefordshire all-age autism strategy. The remaining amount of £5,000 will be provided from the remaining balances of SEN Reform Grant, originally provided by the Department for Education for stimulating developments in relation to SEND and hence this would fit with the conditions of grant.
