The OTC Cert in Autism, Wellbeing and Positive Behaviour Supports is a 12-week, QQI Level 7 Special Purpose Award, €995 which starts February 10th, 2023.

The course is aimed at Supervisors, PICs and managers of human services for people labelled as challenging. It is also suitable for people aspiring to those roles.

OTC Cert in Autism, Wellbeing and Positive Behaviour Supports

The Certificate in Autism, Wellbeing and Positive Behaviour Supports is an accredited programme that focuses on how to effectively support staff who work with individuals on the autistic spectrum to:

  • lead the life they want to live,
  • support and reaffirm the people that are key in the person’s life

The course also explores wellbeing and quality of life. The module looks at positive measures that can provide positive outcomes for a person who has behaviours that challenge. These measures include environmental modification, learning appropriate skills and improving a person’s lifestyle.

This course is made up of two modules and two workshop/webinars. The modules will be predominantly online. The two workshops will be 1-day events that will help you place what you have learnt in the context of your own practice. Discussion and the sharing of experiences are actively encouraged.

The Open Training College

The Open Training College offers courses in management, social care and continuing professional development. Courses at the Open Training College include applied management, professional development, professional social care, intellectual disability practice and CPD courses. We exist to provide accredited training courses and consultancy services to the human services and non-profit sector.

Our knowledge and expertise:

  • Provides people with the skills required to effectively perform their professional roles through courses
  • Directly addresses the operational and strategic challenges experienced by organisations within the sector
  • Makes a constructive contribution to policy and professional practice
  • Offers positive outcomes for service users by encouraging best-practice person-centred processes and competencies

At the Open Training College, our degree level and professional development courses and programmes provide disability and social care professionals with the skills required to deliver effective person centred services. Our accredited certificate, degree and professional development courses and programmes provide people with the knowledge and skills required to manage effectively in a challenging environment. The Open Training College has spent over 20 years working as training experts. In that role we have combined extensive first-line experience with a detailed knowledge of the strategic and operational dynamics of the space.

Established by St. Michael’s House in 1992, our philosophy is, and always will be, shaped by the demands of our sector and the needs of our staff, students, client organisations and service users. We believe that everything we do has to make a difference. To achieve that, it:

  • Must be sector-specific
  • Has to be practical in every sense of that word
  • Remain relevant and meet the highest possible standards of professional practice
  • Reflect the realities of people’s lives

This commitment has driven our desire to create a community of learning and professional practice, one that focuses on the acquisition, dissemination and practical application of knowledge and expertise.

 We believe that this approach – built on collaboration between ourselves, our students and the more than 220 organisations we work with – has created a unique environment in which people from the human services and non-profit sector can learn and work together in ways that make a real difference to our service users.  It has driven:
  • Who we are
  • Our relationship with students and the courses we provide
  • The kind of consultancy services and partnerships we have built up over the last quarter century
