Learner registration and certification
Centres will need to purchase a Realising Aspirations learner registration for each learner.
A learner registration includes a hard copy or electronic copy of three learner records (additional learner records can be purchased online as and when required).
A progress tracker is provided in each learner record and an online learner progress tracker is available for centres to enter which modules and pathways a learner has completed to demonstrate progress and reward small steps of achievement.
- 17 certificates available in total (one for completion of each of the twelve modules, one for completion of each of the four pathways and one for completion of the full course).
- An ASDAN printed, embossed certificate can be requested to mark the completion of a full course. The four pathway certificates can be downloaded from the ASDAN website.
Resources and materials
A learner record is available to support each of the twelve modules. These resources include the module content, as well as the recording templates for each module. They are designed to form part of the learner’s portfolio of evidence.
The learner records and module templates can be completed by learners, or by the teacher/tutor on behalf of the learner, using words, symbols or pictures.
A comprehensive tutor guidance and resources pack has been created to support Realising Aspirations. This pack is essential for centres delivering this course as it contains many of the required resources ie pathway profiles, module completion log and module review.
An electronic copy of the pack will be made available once a centre has purchased a hard copy.
This pack is a one-time purchase that will be continually reviewed and updated and these updates will be provided as part of your ASDAN membership.
Centres can combine modules from Realising Aspirations and Supporting Aspirations to meet individual needs
Person-centred planning toolkit
The toolkit can be used across all four My Independence programmes, it contains person-centred planning tools that can be used to support the development of Education, Health and Care Plans and SEND Support Plans.
Training is available for new and existing members to help staff introduce My Independence into your centre and, where appropriate, support the transition across from the ASDAN Preparing for Adulthood programmes to the new My Independence suite of courses
The person-centred planning tools are a key component of all ASDAN’s My Independence courses. These will be provided to centres who attend training, as part of the My Independence tutor guidance and person-centred planning toolkit.
Additional guidance and mapping will be provided during training for centres in Wales and Scotland.
My Independence will be supported by free to attend, annual professional development meetings (face to face and online).
These meetings will provide opportunities for ongoing development and training for centres, showcasing best practice, networking, collaboration and feedback on learner portfolios.
