Post-16 education provision, destinations and outcomes for autistic young people
The challenges that autistic young people face as they transition to adulthood are well documented. Only one in four autistic young people continue their education beyond school. We are supporting a team of four young researchers to co-produce a piece of research into post-16 education and training for autistic young people working with the Centre for Research in Autism and Education (CRAE).
Funded by the Department for Education through the Autism Education Trust (AET), this research considers what change there have been for autistic young people in post–16 education, since the introduction of new entitlements to education provision to age 25 under the Children and Families Act 2014. The final report will be presented to the Department for Education in March 2020.
