The Professional Certificate in Education (Autism Spectrum Conditions) draws on research spanning education and psychology to give you a multidisciplinary insight into the strengths and needs of students with autism and how you can improve their learning experiences.

You will learn how evidence-based interventions can optimise learning and promote positive behaviour, and develop a repertoire of instructional strategies that can be immediately applied to your own professional context.

Designed to be undertaken part-time over one year, the Professional Certificate is delivered partially online and partially on campus, giving you the flexibility to fit study around existing work commitments.
