About this course

What are the Preparing for Adulthood programmes?

These courses have been developed for learners with a range of special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). 

This range of certificated programmes provides a real-life context to reward achievement and foster the personal, social and work-related abilities of all learners.

Addressing SEND areas of need

ASDAN has produced guidance documents showing how components of our Preparing for Adulthood programmes and Entry 1 qualifications in Personal Progress can meet the four broad areas of need outlined in the SEND code of practice. Download our free guide to addressing SEND areas of need.
