Where every child shines!


Autism Education Trust


Welcome to the Central Hub- Walsall

The Autism Education Trust (AET)


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-centred, outcomes and process focussed, inclusive and accessible, evidence-based, high quality and working in partnership.


What AET do

The AET’s vision is that all children and young people with autism receive an education that enables them to fulfil their aspirations and engage in society as active citizens.

Our mission is to provide professional development resources and opportunities that support education services and staff in securing positive experiences and outcomes for children and young people with autism.


Here at the Central Hub-Walsall, we offer the AET Professional Development Programmes for Early Years, Schools and Post 16. Training can be delivered face-to-face or virtually for professionals working with Autistic children and young people up to the age of 25.
