Certificate of Personal Effectiveness (CoPE) and
Award of Personal Effectiveness (AoPE): Introductory Workshop

CoPE and AoPE Level 1 and 2 workshops aim to develop awareness and understanding of both qualifications, and consider issues of implementation and quality assurance. They outline the requirements for the qualifications, while identifying development and assessment opportunities from a range of ASDAN challenges.

The workshops will give you all the information you need to develop the qualifications in your establishment, and enable you to attend your local cluster meetings.

Please note that workshops taking place in Scotland and Northern Ireland will focus on CoPE Level 1 and 2 only.

Please note that training for CoPE Level 3 is available as part of a separate CoPE Level 3 Introductory Workshop (see below).

What is CoPE?

The Certificate of Personal Effectiveness (CoPE) is ASDAN's flagship qualification and offers an imaginative way of accrediting young people’s curriculum enrichment and extra-curricular activities, allowing centres to certificate a wide range of personal qualities, skills and achievements, as well as introducing new activities and challenges.

Detailed information about the qualification is available on the CoPE qualification page.

What is AoPE?

The Award of Personal Effectiveness is a qualification outcome of the ASDAN Programmes – it is a shorter version of CoPE, carrying performance table points comparable to half a GCSE and 30 UCAS points at Level 3. AoPE is approved by Ofqual and sits within the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF).

Detailed information about the qualification is available on the AoPE qualification page.
