She works with individuals on the Autism Spectrum on a daily basis but has no formal qualifications in this area yet. She says, ‘My knowledge of the Autistic Spectrum condition has grown and I have learnt more about the condition and how it affects individuals. The course has challenged my knowledge and creativity and I have enjoyed the format of the course, producing booklets and leaflets for new staff in my service, rather than just producing essays. I have also had the chance to work alongside staff from other organisations within the Adult Autism Services. I have found qualities within myself that I didn’t realise I had and my confidence has grown as a result. After, I will continue to work with adults on the Autism Spectrum, but with a better understanding of their needs.’ This qualification is aimed at people interested in working in adult social care. You will develop the professional knowledge, skills and confidence necessary to work in this sector. Topics include: communication, the role of the social care worker, handling information, health and safety, person centred care, safeguarding and duty of care.
