Customised Accreditation


Customised Accreditation is the process by which ASDAN accredits a programme that is already being offered or has been written by another organisation. We offer a bespoke arrangement to provide certificates to reward learners’ achievement.

Customised Accreditation provides:

  • 'Added value’ to existing programmes, courses or initiatives
  • Curriculum endorsement by a nationally recognised awarding body
  • Opportunities to build links between the school and community
  • An incentive for learners to engage with programmes
  • Recognition of learners’ contributions to school life

Who is this for?

Customised Accreditation is ideal for any organisation that wishes to have their programme accredited.


Customised programmes may be worth up to three ASDAN curriculum credits. Learners who complete a customised programme can use these curriculum credits towards the International Bronze/Silver and International Gold Personal Development Programmes.

Additional benefits

As well as receiving accreditation for their programme, organisations that sign up for Customised Accreditation are also entitled to:

  • Use ASDAN Customised Accreditation branding
  • A listing and link on the ASDAN website
  • Customised ASDAN certificates
  • Additional ASDAN services and support
