Autism first begins to appear during infancy or early childhood, and generally follows a steady course with no remission. Whilst people with autism can be severely impaired in some aspects of life they can also be ‘normal’, or even superior, in others. Obvious symptoms progressively to appear after the age of six months, become more established by age two or three years. The symptoms tend to continue through adulthood, although often in a less obvious form.

This Autism Awareness for Educators course has been created to promote a better understanding of the struggles a person with autism goes through on a daily basis. More than 1 in 100 children are diagnosed with autism every year which is why this Autism Awareness for Educators course is now more crucial. This Autism Awareness for Educators course will help you assist autistic children in acquiring social skills, an appropriate education and learning to function independently.


This course comes to you as a paper course pack which you can work through in your own time. By reading through the lessons on the course and with the help of a personal tutor you will be able to learn all of the necessary knowledge required to tackle the tutor marked assignments that are used to assess the course. Alternatively, you can study for this course online to save some money on your course and study through the internet with the materials available 24/7 on any computer or smart device.


A tutor will be able for support via post or e-mail, with our student support team also on hand to help with any queries you may have. Assignments must be submitted to your tutor through email and these are then marked as soon as possible.

Quality Licence Scheme Certification

At the end of this course successful learners will be given the option to receive a Certificate of Achievement from the Quality Licence Scheme and a Learner Unit Summary (which lists the components the learner has completed as part of the course)

The course has been endorsed under the Quality Licence Scheme. This means that NCC Home Learning has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet defined quality criteria. The completion of this course alone does not lead to a regulated qualification* but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills gained. The Learner Unit Summary may be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this subject. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at QLS Level 3 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of demand/complexity involved in successful completion by the learner.

The course itself has been designed by NCC Home Learning to meet specific learners’ and/or employers’ requirements which cannot be satisfied through current regulated qualifications. The Quality Licence Scheme endorsement involves robust and rigorous quality audits by external auditors to ensure quality is continually met. A review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.
