This e-learning resource – www.lifeskillschallenge.org.uk – allows schools, colleges and other providers to personalise their learners' curriculum and meet their individual needs. Choose from an online bank of Challenges that recognise learners' progress in curriculum areas that are important for success in adult life. The Challenges are usually about being able to do things, rather than acquiring a significant body of knowledge. Lifeskills Challenge also comes with the option of ASDAN certification, offering recognition for small steps of achievement.
