ASDAN Personal Development Programmes

Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards

By completing challenges from a choice of subjects, students will gain CREDITS. The programme records the amount of time spent working on the challenges. Each credit is equivalent to ten hours work. Depending on how many hours have been spent in total, certificates are awarded for BRONZE (60 hours), SILVER(120 hours) and GOLD (180 hours). When the chosen programme has been completed, the tutor will award the appropriate certificate.

There are also ASDAN short courses available in various subjects, which can also build credits towards other ASDAN qualifications.
