ASDAN's established Personal Development Programmes (Bronze, Silver and Gold) offer imaginative ways of developing, recording and certificating a wide range of young people’s personal qualities, abilities and achievements, as well as introducing them to new activities and challenges. All the programmes link to nationally recognised qualifications. Each learner must work from their own student book and compile a portfolio of evidence to show what they have done. Students are required to plan and review their work at key points, explaining how they have developed their skills in six areas: Teamwork, Learning, Coping with problems, Use of Maths, Use of English and Use of IT.
ASDAN’s flagship Personal Development Programmes have been used by centres for more than 20 years. They are suitable for use in all educational settings and pitched at learners aged 14-16 working at National 3 and National 4.
The Personal Development Programmes features 13 modules. Students gain 1 or 2 credits for each section completed, with each credit representing about 10 hours of activity. Six credits are needed to achieve Bronze, 12 credits for Silver and 18 credits for Gold. Internally-moderated Bronze Credit certificates are available for any learner that completes less than 60 hours’ work.
Centres will be required to internally moderate students’ work. ASDAN will then issue certificates following successful external moderation.
