What does ASDAN mean?

ASDAN
ASDAN (Award Scheme Development and Accreditation Network) is a British education charity and awarding organisation, headquartered in Bristol. It provides curriculum programmes and qualifications to help young people develop knowledge and skills for learning, work and life. It began as a research project of the University of the West of England in the 1980s, and was formally established as an educational charity in 1991. ASDAN programmes and qualifications are delivered by over 3,000 secondary schools, special schools, colleges, alternative education providers and youth organisations across the United Kingdom, and in more than thirty countries and territories overseas. As an organisation focused on supporting the next generation, we have recognised the need to adapt our offer, innovate and deliver courses that are fit for the future and better serve the contemporary needs of learners and educators. The stated purpose of the charity is this: "The advancement of education, by providing opportunities for all learners to develop their personal and social attributes and levels of achievement through ASDAN awards and resources, and the relief of poverty, where poverty inhibits such opportunities for learners."ASDAN's charitable fund provides grants to registered centres of ASDAN to help increase educational opportunity and alleviate the effects of deprivation and poverty, both in the United Kingdom and overseas. For 2018–19, ASDAN’s grants will support centres undertaking pilot projects to trial new ASDAN courses designed to foster young people’s personal, social and work related abilities. ASDAN programmes and qualifications are widely recognised by educators for providing an engaging curriculum that empowers students through personalised learning and choice. Their courses motivate and enhance learners' confidence, self esteem and resilience. In addition, learners develop core skills in teamwork, communication, problem solving, research and self management.Its flagship course is Certificate of Personal Effectiveness (CoPE), which is a nationally recognised qualification. It can be studied in Years 10 and 11 (Scottish S4 and S5), or in Post 16 education, either within the whole school PSHE programme or within the option system. It aims to develop skills and knowledge in areas such as communication, citizenship and community, beliefs and values, the environment, health and fitness, and independent living, among other things.CoPE Level 3 offers a tariff of 16 UCAS points towards university admission.
