Throughout the year, ASDAN offers a wide range of staff development training workshops. Held in venues across the UK and Ireland, these workshops offer a friendly, accessible and hands-on introduction to ASDAN's programmes and qualifications. The majority of workshops are full-day courses with lunch, refreshments and training materials provided.
Training is mandatory for the CoPE and AoPE, Personal Progress, Volunteering, Employability, Diploma in Life Skills and PSD qualifications and is highly recommended for anyone running or planning to run any ASDAN curriculum programme. All workshops cover the processes involved, offer guidance on delivery and moderation and explain how to maximise the benefits of each programme.
Please note: the Programmes Workshop covers ASDAN Bronze, Silver, Gold and the Short Courses. The Level 3 Qualifications Workshop introduces ASDAN's Level 3 qualifications: AoPE, CoPE, Employability, Event Volunteering and Wider Key Skills.
Arranging an in-house training day/INSET in your centre is an alternative way to ensure your staff are equipped to deliver the wide range of ASDAN Programmes and Qualifications on offer. It can also encourage team-building and help develop a shared approach to ASDAN within your centre.
