New film showcases benefits of My Independence programme

A new film from ASDAN demonstrates how our new preparing for adulthood programme, My Independence, will transform outcomes for learners with SEND.

The course is structured around the four PfA (preparing for adulthood) pathways (friends, relationships and community; employment; good health; independent living) and provides the most relevant programme for young people with SEND (special educational needs and disabilities) and education, health and care plans, fully aligning to their educational needs.

ASDAN's My Independence video explains how the programme has been designed to help young people with SEND develop a breadth of outcomes required to live independently.

Exceeding expectations

Leigh Blakeman, Tutor at Chadsgrove Educational Trust Specialist College, said: “The flexibility of My Independence is a real positive. It’s clear that you can use it to structure a completely new curriculum or to accredit an existing one.

“My Independence has helped engage learners, boost their confidence and, importantly, develop their essential life skills. It is a very exciting course and the resources have exceeded our expectations.”
