Learner registration and certification
Centres will need to purchase a Transforming Aspirations learner registration for each learner.
A learner registration includes a hard copy or electronic copy of a Learner record.
A pathway progress tracker is provided in the learner record and an online learner progress tracker is available for centres to enter which pathways a learner has completed to demonstrate progress and reward small steps of achievement.
- Five certificates available in total (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
The learner record contains the course content, each pathway contains 12 subject areas.
A pathway reflection at the end of each pathway allows for learners to say or show what they can do and decide for themselves and what activities they would like to try and be able to do on their own.
The learner record and recording templates can be completed by learner, or by the teacher/tutor on behalf of the learner, using words, symbols or pictures.
Tutor guidance for Transforming Aspirations will be provided to centres for free when they attend training and will then be available to download from the members area.
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.
