ASDAN is a well-known and respected awarding organisation that provides flexible and engaging qualifications that help young people develop skills for learning, work and life.

In Key Stage 3 pupils will be participating in project based work that will give them a taster of the Asdan course.  They will be completing short projects in:

  • Sports and Leisure
  • Independent Living
  • Health and Fitness
  • International Links

In Year 10, pupils will be following the CoPE (Certificate in Personal Effectiveness) qualification.  This is a substantial and wide-ranging qualification at level 1 and 2.  The purpose of CoPe is to enable young people to:

  • Develop and demonstrate a range of personal, key and employability skills
  • Broaden their experience
  • Manage their learning in a variety of real-life contexts

To gain the Certificate of Personal Effectiveness, pupils must:

  • Take responsibility for planning, organising and carrying out a number of activities or challenges.
  • Develop and provide evidence of working with others, improving own learning and performance and problem solving
  • Develop and provide evidence of their skills of research, discussion and presentation
  • Produce evidence of their achievements in a portfolio

In Year 11, pupils will follow the AoPE (Award in Personal Effectiveness) qualification.  This is a shortened version of the above course.
