TRACK are hosting their first ever 'Introduction to Autism in the Workplace' event on Thursday 11th October at the PTS Academy Stadium. The event will include a morning of guest speakers, activities, case studies, networking opportunities, Q&A and more.
Director Tom Cliffe said, “This is an opportunity for local businesses and organisations to come along and learn more about the benefits of supporting their existing autistic employees and also about how to recruit new employees who possess a wide variety of skills.
“The morning will allow you to learn more about autism, the benefits of employing people on the autism spectrum and some practical strategies which you can use to support your employees, whilst also looking at the additional support which is available.
“We are delighted to be hosting our first event at the PTS Academy Stadium, and we are also looking to work with NTFC on a range of activities to support people on the autism spectrum.”

TRACK nn Limited is a new Social Enterprise in Northampton, which is supporting people on the autism spectrum to access employment, through training, consultancy and creating opportunities. We address that fact that currently just 16% of autistic adults find themselves in full time employment, which is something which must change.
Our Two Key Areas of Business are:
1) Training and Consultancy – providing businesses with the knowledge and support they need to ensure that their workplace is accessible to people with autism. This can range from introduction presentations and awareness sessions, through to job re-design and on-going mentoring. As well as supporting new and existing employees, this training can also support businesses in ensuring they understand the needs of their customers/clients
2) Creating Opportunities – we are setting up a Northampton town centre-based Café which will offer training opportunities for people on the autism spectrum to gain real life work experience in a supportive environment. We will also be hosting a range of events, so be sure to visit us!
