Learners must complete the required number of activities from modules in their chosen student book. Each module can be individually certificated or learners can complete all five modules and receive a gold certificate of achievement.
There are four modules in the Sensory book: Communication and Interaction, Cognition, Physical, and Self-help and Independence. Learners must complete at least five activities to achieve each module. Download a sample copy of the Sensory student book. There are five modules in the Introduction and Progression book: Knowing How, Making Choices, Feeling Good, Moving Forward and Taking the Lead.

Levels of support
Levels of support are used to show how the learner has achieved the activity. They show individual progression and differentiation between learners:
- Experience recorded
- Gestural help
- No help
- Physical help
- Sensory experience
- Spoken/signed help
Additionally, there is an opportunity to record learners' achievements by allocating a P level or other descriptor to their work, as appropriate.
A Transition Challenge Tutor Guidance and Resources folder is available to buy, which includes an overview of the programme, photocopiable resources, ideas for gathering evidence, and answers to frequently asked questions.

Once your centre is registered with ASDAN for Transition Challenge, 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.
After students' work has been internally moderated, centres must register candidates for external moderation, which is carried out at a regional moderation meeting or by post. ASDAN will issue certificates following successful external moderation.
