ASDAN has been supporting centres with their SEND provision for more than 20 years; providing appropriate courses for young people with barriers to learning is at the very heart of our organisation. This booklet provides information about ASDAN courses for SEND provision, including our Preparing for Adulthood programmes and Entry-level qualifications.
ASDAN’s educational principles underpin all of our courses, which are designed to address barriers to learning by: building belief; engaging and motivating learners; promoting young people’s progress and achievement; inspiring creativity; and releasing potential. To celebrate the launch of our refreshed educational principles, we are giving away five free resources; the resources are linked to the Certificate of Personal Effectiveness (CoPE) qualification and the Bronze, Silver, Gold programmes.
To celebrate Christmas, we have compiled three free resources to help educators add a festive touch to the end of term:

Helping others at Christmas
Christmas label templates
You can read more about the resources and download them for use in your lessons via our website.
Our values define the way we work and how we set out to achieve our vision – transforming life chances through learning. To celebrate the launch of our refreshed values, ASDAN is giving away five free resources.
Each resource is linked to an ASDAN value – ethical, diverse, real, collaborative and innovative. The resources support two of our most popular courses – the Certificate of Personal Effectiveness (CoPE) qualification and the Bronze, Silver, Gold Personal Development Programmes.
These resources aim to support parents by giving ideas and activity suggestions around teaching specific skills within different areas of development.
