We offer a variety of ASDAN programmes to suit the needs and abilities of individual young people. These have been planned and adapted into our curriculum to compliment and extend what we offer to maximise the experiences and increase the success. We aim to support our young people to work on our broad and balanced curriculum the evidence for which can be used towards completing the ASDAN modules and obtained recognised certificates for completion. All modules are assessed using a variety of differentiated levels of support which enables everyone to access these regardless of their needs or barriers.
