This week’s episode is all about teaching students on the autism spectrum, with the incredibly inspirational and creative Charlotte Judd, from Weston Bay College.
Weston Bay is the only residential autism training environment in the UK, and Charlotte paints a brilliant picture of what it’s like to work, and study there. Everything from ensuring the wellbeing of students, to improving digital skills, and training students for the workplace, is perfectly tailored to the needs of each individual student.
Charlotte explains how they supported students during lockdown – including everything from online cooking classes, to work experience placements in COVID-19 test centres.
It’s true what Charlotte says, every day in her role is completely different, and this chat proves how the college rises to challenges, pivoting, adapting and finding solutions that suit their students.
Charlotte also shares some helpful resources for those teaching students on the autism spectrum.
