NATP Experts by Experience

How to connect with NATP Experts by Experience.

The National Autism Trainer Programme (NATP) will be delivered to thousands of NHS trainers working in mental health settings, as well as staff working in residential special education, and health and justice settings, over three years.

NATP has a strong co-delivery ethos, which means that once qualified as NATP Trainers, staff will co-deliver the NATP curriculum back to their services with Experts by Experience (EbEs).

NATP Trainers and EbEs will work together to deliver the training. and enable staff to work in safe and neurodiversity-affirming ways, with diagnosed and undiagnosed autistic people. Experts by Experience are central to the successful implementation of the programme: co-delivering the training content, answering questions, and providing relevant accounts of their experiences.

When you qualify as a NATP Trainer, we can connect you with EbEs to co-deliver training in your work setting. You can choose an EbE with relevant experience, who has NATP certification to deliver training in your type of setting.

Please complete this form with details of your requirements, and the NATP team will be in touch shortly with EbE contact details who have NATP certification and relevant experience for your work setting.
