ASDAN and Music is an exciting practical course delivered as the Bronze, Silver and Gold awards. The course involves lots of interesting challenges utilising mostly Kinesthetic learning. Pupils take part in adventure challenges, environmental schemes and outdoor sports as well as maintenance activities.
There is a strong emphasis of tying in work between the house and the school settings; some challenges may be completed off-site ad even outside of the school timetable with pupils working alongside key workers.
Pupils are encouraged to undertake independent working challenges in preparation for eventual semi-independent living (as outlined in the 'Transition To Adulthood - Preparation For Independence And Pathway Planning Checklist').
ASDAN fits very well into the notion of 'Authentic Learning' which involves contextual skill based learning.
