ASDAN programmes are widely recognised by educators for providing an engaging curriculum that empowers students through personalised learning and choice. Our 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. Our programmes are suitable for young people and adults aged seven to 19 and over. Accreditation is available for 10 to 120 hours of activities.


From Entry to University levels and for all ages of learner, but with a particular focus on the 13-19 age group, ASDAN courses offer wide-ranging provision. The courses are delivered in a variety of settings, including secondary schools, Post-16 provision, special schools and primary schools, as well as in training and non-formal contexts.

Course types

ASDAN courses fall into three categories:

  • Curriculum Programmes: ASDAN offers a wide choice of flexible, activity-based programmes for learners working at a range of levels. Our courses offer imaginative ways of developing, assessing and certificating young people’s knowledge and skills development.
  • Development Courses: A low-cost programme with a certificate at the end, for individuals or small numbers of learners​.
  • ASDAN can also offer bespoke accreditation for your existing programme through our Customised Accreditation option.
