Welcome to the North East training hub for the Autism Education Trust. Here you can find details of the training offered by Beaumont Hill Academy.

What does the Autism Education Trust (AET) do?

The purpose of the AET is to improve the education of children and young people with autism. 

To achieve this, the AET:

•    Develops and delivers training and a range of materials for early years, school and post 16 educational settings.

•    Develops and disseminates information on educational practice. 

•    Provides an interface between users, practitioners and policy makers in respect of educational practice. 

•    Actively engages with young people, parents/carers and practitioners to inform its work. 

•    Undertakes research into effective practice.

In May 2016 Beaumont Hill Academy was successful in being awarded the training licence, on behalf of the AET, for the North East region.

Beaumont Hill Academy is a special school catering for the needs of over 250 pupils ranging from 2 - 19 years and of all abilities. Approximately one third of those pupils have a primary diagnosis of having an Autistic Spectrum Disorder.

Beaumont Hill Academy demonstrates exemplary practice delivered by a   team of specialist expert staff. It is as a result of this practice that all departments, primary, secondary and the post 16 provision, have maintained accredited recognition by the National Autistic Society.
