    Kensington Queensmill School is committed to ensuring staff possess the skills needed to meet the very discrete needs of our pupils, through a range of appropriate training.

    The robust and comprehensive training provides staff opportunities for their own professional development in their knowledge of autism, specific subject/curriculum knowledge and other relevant knowledge related to creating an appropriate education and environment for children and young people with autism.

    The training and development at Kensington Queensmill focuses on two main areas:

    1. Providing a focused and up to date knowledge of autism and best practices for working with children and young people with autism
    2. Providing a focused and up to date knowledge of subject areas/curriculum and current educational strategies
