Priors Court Graduate Programme is an 18-month programme designed to be a structured yet flexible pathway to a rewarding career, in care.

With two decades of autism expertise we will offer you an excellent standard of training and development to support your career development and enhance your skills, knowledge and experience in autism.

Prior's Court was set up by Founding Patron Dame Stephanie Shirley, whose vision of a centre of excellence for children with autism became reality with the opening of Prior's Court School in 1999. We have since grown to support around 90 young people with autism aged between 5-25 years with the opening of Prior's Court Young Adult Provision in 2011.

Since opening, our support team has grown from around 20 to 600 and we have built a reputation as a leading edge educational, vocational, and residential facility for young people with autism. Working with our young people can be challenging but extremely rewarding. Hear from our staff who are passionate about the difference they make.

This will give you the insight into the specialised approach we use to support our young people with autism. It will equip you with the knowledge and experience required, to better understand and contribute to the excellent work we do to support our amazing young people.

In addition to four placements across the organisation candidates are expected to propose, organise, and execute a project which enhances the lives of the YP at Priors Court, OR conduct extensive research piece as part of Prior’s Court Research Board.
