The Autism Education Trust (AET) helps children and young people with autism to receive an education, enabling them to reach their potential.
The AET is a not for profit programme led by two national autism charities – The National Autistic Society and Ambitious about Autism. Established and supported by the Department for Education, the AET promotes and supports partnerships throughout the education system to improve educational access, experience and outcomes for children and young people with autism. Underpinned by current research into good education practice, the AET programme is structured around the three education phases – early years, school and post 16. Our core values are: person-centered, outcomes and process focused, inclusive and accessible, evidence-based, high quality and working in partnership.
The AET is not a legal entity and is hosted on behalf of the partnership by the National Autistic Society (NAS). NAS carries all legal responsibility for the programme and enters into all contracts on its behalf.
