Lifeskills Challenge

ASDAN has developed workshops for Lifeskills Challenge following the launch of a new website for the programme in April. Lifeskills Chalenge is an online bank of challenges for learners working from pre-Entry to Level 3.

EPQ workshops

Workshops are also taking place on ASDAN’s new Extended Project Qualification, which is equivalent to half an A-level and attracts up to 28 UCAS points. ASDAN has developed a new approach to this Level 3 qualification by supporting students to build their project around a work experience placement.

Inset options

Centres can request an INSET to provide in-house training at your centre, which is customised to the needs of your organisation.

This course has given us exactly what we have been looking for. I feel enlightened, informed and empowered. Thank you!

Very clear. Has increased my understanding of ASDAN as a whole

The trainer was outstanding as he was sympathetic yet very clear in how we move forward as a centre. I have increased my knowledge and am more equipped to improve my teaching of CoPE

The workshop was of a very high quality

Thoroughly enjoyable and understandable. Very informative

Useful, informative and looking forward to implementing it with our students
