This programme offers a qualification that delivers the knowledge and skills required to support people with autism in a range of different situations. It is designed specifically for students who provide home, community and school-based services, and is therefore flexible, combining intensive workshop teaching, web-based study and work-based learning. The Foundation Degree (FdSc) is completed by blended learning, usually over two years. It combines web-based guided study and discussions with work-based learning, allowing flexibility and a very practical approach. In the second year of the programme, you complete a work-based learning module that requires you to be working with children or adults with autism. You can either do this as part of your normal job role (including as a family carer) or as a placement, which you organise yourself.
