UK Young Autism Project’s centre based programmes provide a centre of excellence in treatment and staff clinical training. All staff members receive extensive hands-on training and also receive training in the theory and research of the UCLA model of Applied Behaviour Analysis. Tutor training and quality control meets the UCLA Multi-Site Young Autism Project protocol.
The organisation promotes career development; talented tutors may progress to become senior tutors. Senior tutors undergo a series of classes and training, and may progress to train to become programme consultants.
We employ all tutors working on our centre based programme. The most likely candidates are usually, but not exclusively, psychology or education graduates.
An applicant does not need to have special credentials or previous experience to be a good tutor. We believe that all the procedures we employ can be mastered by most persons. Dependability and open-mindedness are important characteristics in an applicant.
UK Young Autism Project has been directly involved in the creation of the UK ABA Education Competencies Framework.

UK Young Autism Project checks all references very thoroughly. DBS checks are obtained on all employees; safeguarding and child protection procedures are conducted as part of the recruitment process.
(The Criminal Records Bureau and the Independent Safeguarding Authority have merged to form the Disclosure and Barring Service so all previously named CRB checks are issued as DBS checks in line with national procedures).
If you are invited to an interview, you will be required to bring the Child Protection and Safeguarding forms with you.
