The ASDAN programme offers students the opportunity to develop and recognise a range of skills that will be invaluable when they start work and begin living independent lives. Students complete challenges tailored to their specific needs, evidencing their achievements in a portfolio. They will be awarded credits for these activities which will then allow them to be certified at three different levels: Bronze, silver or gold. As they complete different modules the students will develop skills such as teamwork, coping with problems and using maths, English and ICT in everyday life. They may have the opportunity to do some work based learning and will have additional literacy and numeracy classes alongside their ASDAN course.
