An independent specialist college in South Shields has just received a glowing report from Ofsted after it’s first Inspection.
Parents and carers comment on how the training transforms the lives of their children, citing significant improvements in confidence, interaction and preparation for employment.
Learners benefit from high-quality work-experience placements, such as in the Sea Change café, which is open to the public. They gain valuable experience in workplace environments. They increase their confidence in work situations and acquire skills that they will need in future job roles. ‘
” The headlines from the Ofsted report really capture how well the service meets the individual needs of the learners and just how much progress learners make during their time at Autism Able. The staff team have worked so hard for this recognition and the inspectors seemed so impressed with the Autism Able model and how we support learners to develop skills for employment and independence. A great end to the academic year for us! “
Nadine Williams, Service Manager, Autism Able
” I’m very proud of the staff for the hard work they’ve put in over the pandemic and beyond that has resulted in this positive Ofsted report. They deserve a lot of credit and we will continue to develop our service and strive for improvements to ensure we are providing the best learning environment for young adults with Autism.”
