removing barriers that prevent autistic individuals finding jobs in sport

We spent time with some of the dedicated turnstile staff who welcome fans to Northampton Saints matchdays at cinch Stadium, Franklins Gardens.

Employability experts

Our close friends at TRACK NN are experts in employment. They support people with autism into the workplace creating work experience opportunities, training businesses and management staff, and providing support services.

TRACK’s history and reputation doesn’t just break down barriers to employment, but proves that autistic individuals will often bring value to the businesses they work for.

Sports & Stats Masterclass

The Sports & Stats Masterclass includes three pre-recorded videos covering different themes in sports, such as business, statistics, and employment, as well as some short activities to support the learning process.

The videos are great for anyone who would like to learn more about careers in sport, and employers to understand how they can bring the best out of autistic people at the workplace.

The videos were really clear and it was good to see people from a professional background.

Masterclass participant

Following a successful pilot project, the roll-out has been possible thanks to the support from Tesco shoppers in Northampton who voted for Spautism to receive funding through the Tesco Community Grants initiative.
