ASDAN Course

So today I have been on an ASDAN course...and you know how venue's for courses can sometimes be lovely and then there's the ones that can be a bit shoddy...well this is where I had my course...

York National Railway Museum
It was an amazing venue and the catering was fantastic...although I should probably concentrate on the course content...

The course was really informative, it was the preparatory program course and information about future courses can be found here:
The course covered 5 different pre entry programs -
  • New Horizons (KS3 P.S.H.E. based program)
  • Transition Challenge (KS4 program)
  • Towards Independence (KS5 program)
  • Workright (accreditation for work experience)
  • Literacy and Numeracy in Everyday Life (for P1-8)
It gave the opportunity to gain a better understanding about the content of the preparatory programs as well as the accreditation process and a chance to see the support materials.

The trainer was great and she gave everyone the opportunity to ask questions and she went into a lot of detail and raised a range of issues and FAQ's usually asked by a range of practitioners.

If you are interested in the ASDAN courses follow the link and consider the courses, they are incredibly informative. You could also follow ASDAN on twitter - @ASDANeducation

ALSO...I have added some resources/a 2 year plan for teaching New Horizons to TES which also may be a useful starting point - I will keep adding more as we progress through the modules.
