Curriculum Programmes

Overview

ASDAN offers a wide choice of activity-based curriculum programmes that can be used in a variety of educational settings with learners working at a range of levels. More flexible than qualifications, these programmes offer imaginative ways of developing, recording and certificating young people’s personal achievements. 

The focus is on skills development, with courses available for young people aged 7-19 over a range of timescales, from 10 to 180 hours. 

SEND Opportunities

ASDAN's range of Preparing for Adulthood Programmes are designed for children and young people who have moderate, severe, complex, profound or multiple learning difficulties.

Some of these programmes are also appropriate for adults with learning difficulties and disabilities within adult social care settings. The Focus resources would also be a suitable programme for this learner group.

These programmes provide a real-life context to promote the development of personal, social, independent, ICT and work-related skills for those working between P Levels 1-8 (below National Curriculum Level 1).
