The course was really informative, it was the preparatory program course and information about future courses can be found here: http://www.asdan.org.uk/Training_and_Events/Preparatory_WS
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)
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.
