ASDAN / CoPE

ASDAN (Award Scheme Development and Accreditation Network) is a flexible way of learning, which is tailored to meet the needs of the individual. It consists of a series of challenges of varying difficulty and complexity. The ASDAN Bronze Award is designed to develop, assess and accredit Key Skills and recognise personal achievements, which help to build a portfolio of evidence for moderation at the end of Year 10.
Pupil’s need to complete 6 modules in order to successfully achieve the Bronze Award. They need to complete Plan, Do and Review paperwork and support this with relevant evidence.

After successfully completing the ASDAN Bronze Award in Year 10, pupils will be able to progress onto CoPE (Certificate of Personal Effectiveness) Level 1 qualification in Year 11. This qualification builds on and enhances skills previously studied in the ASDAN course, as well as developing employability skills and personal effectiveness. In order to be successful pupils will need to undertake a work experience placement, participate in a range of activities, carry out a research project, deliver an oral presentation, work upon problem solving skills and present these in a portfolio of evidence.
