ASDAN – Learning Program

ASDAN is a not-for-profit, curriculum development organisation and internationally recognised awarding body based in the United Kingdom. ASDAN offers a wide range of curriculum programs and qualifications for all abilities, mainly in the 11-25 age groups.

In 2009 – 2010, the Department of Education introduced the ASDAN Preparatory Award Programs which have been designed for students with special educational needs and disability. Each award program provides a real-life context to promote the development of personal, social, independent, ICT and work-related skills.

Since their introduction the ASDAN award programs have become an integral part of the curriculum offerings for students with special education needs in Western Australian secondary schools.

If you would like to know more about the ASDAN Preparatory Award Programs the ASDAN UK website provides detailed information.
