RNIB College Loughborough has been recognised for its high-quality work with young people who have autism.

 
The National Autistic Society awards Autism Accreditations to organisations which show a high level of expertise and consistent good practice when working with people on the autism spectrum.
 
To achieve accreditation, RNIB College Loughborough was assessed on its individual plans and objectives, sensory and behaviours support, and training and policies. The assessors spoke to students and staff to gain an understanding of the College's person-centred approach as well as observing students in class and at external work placements.
 
Principal June Murray said:
 

“We’re delighted to have achieved this highly regarded accreditation, which gives confidence to families who may be considering our provision for someone with autism.”
