Programmes and Qualifications

ASDAN programmes and qualifications are widely recognised by educators for providing an engaging curriculum that empowers students through personalised learning and choice. Our courses motivate and enhance learners' confidence, self-esteem and resilience. In addition, learners develop core skills in teamwork, communication, problem solving, research and self-management. ASDAN courses can be divided into two types:

  • Programmes – structured, ‘light touch’ courses that promote active learning and progression and reward achievement
  • Qualifications – from Entry 1 to Level 3, approved by the national regulators for England (Ofqual), Wales (Qualifications Wales), Northern Ireland (CCEA) and recognised by the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA)

ASDAN can also offer bespoke accreditation for your existing programme through our Customised Accreditation.
