Live and Learn

"Creating a Culture
of Gentleness"



The Award Scheme Development and Accreditation Network (ASDAN) is an internationally recognised awarding body.  It offers a wide range of curriculum programmes for all abilities, mainly in the 11-25 age groups. 

Bradstow is registered as an ASDAN centre and is currently running the ASDAN Transition Challenge, Towards Independence, Workright and Bronze/Silver Awards.


The Transition Challenge modules provide a framework of activities to develop and accredit independent living and personal skills.  

The Key Stage 4 curriculum embeds this learning alongside National Curriculum top based learning.

Children & young people can undertake activities with as much support as necessary; this offers progression and a smooth transition into Key Stage 5 learning using Towards Independence.

The Towards Independence Programme has modules encompassing PSHE, Careers, Citizenship, Key Skills and work related learning for young people in Key Stage 5.  


 Young people follow a programme of study incorporating Towards Independence modules. 

The Workright Unit supports learning in work experience.  The unit guides the young people through activities that help them learn about aspects of working life and can be achieved alongside the Towards Independence Programme and work experience opportunities.


The Bronze/Silver Awards are aimed at children & young people as an extension to the curriculum at Bradstow School. The programmes offers 12 modules and children & young people can choose the appropriate module to enable them to gain credits for completed challenges.  These credits can then be used to help them achieve the Silver/Gold award.
