Preparing for Adulthood is a suite of four programmes, each suited to different ASN settings. They have been developed for learners with moderate, severe, complex, profound or multiple learning difficulties. Certificated programmes provide a real-life context to reward achievement and promote the development of personal, social, independent, ICT and work-related skills.
There are four Preparing for Adulthood programmes, each suited to different ASN settings:
New Horizons: for learners aged 9-13 with special educational needs
Transition Challenge: for 14-16 year olds with severe and/or profound learning difficulties
Towards Independence: for young people (14+) and adults with moderate, severe, and profound and multiple learning difficulties
Workright: for young people (14+) and adults following a work-based programme of study
Learners must complete the required number of activities from modules in their chosen student book. The time commitment may vary between programmes.
Certificates are awarded upon completion of the Preparing for Adulthood programmes. For those seeking a qualification outcome, all of the programmes can be used to support the delivery of the ASDAN Entry 1 qualifications in Personal Progress.
