Learners complete challenges and collate the work they produce in a portfolio of evidence, along with their student book and recording documents. The Key Steps learner guide shows what learners need to do to complete the programme.
Students must complete 30 hours of challenges to achieve each certificate. Students may achieve up to three certificates.
Challenges can be selected from any of the nine modules:
- Personal Finance
For centres new to ASDAN, your first step is to complete the Centre Registration Form. Current ASDAN centres need to ensure that Key Steps is added to their centre's registration.
Following registration, you will be able to purchase your books and access additional resources and guidance via the members area of this website.
ASDAN members area
Once your centre is registered with ASDAN for Key Steps, you can find further information and resources in the members area. This section of the website contains all the essential documents, forms and updates that you will need to deliver your course.
There is no limit to the number of people from a centre who can register to use the members area. You can create a new user account using the online form.
Once students' work has been internally moderated, centres can request certificates for successful candidates from ASDAN, using the form in the members area.
There is no external moderation for this programme, although ASDAN reserves the right to request samples of candidates' work for quality assurance purposes.
