OVERVIEW OF COURSE
Students start the ASDAN Short Course at the start of Year 9. During one hour a week lessons in Year 9 and one hour per two weeks in Year 10 and 11, students complete a series of challenges aimed at increasing knowledge and understanding about areas of Beliefs and Values on the GCSE syllabus. The challenges also enable students to demonstrate ability to manage their own learning whilst developing personal effectiveness.
Challenges are drawn from a range of Modules: Creeds, Values, Beliefs and Decision Making, Crime and Punishment, Peace and Conflict and Inspiration.
Students will experience opportunities to reflect on the importance of Key/Core Skills. These are an everyday part of adult and working life. Students need to be able to make themselves understood when speaking and writing, planning their own learning, working with others, carrying out basic calculations and using information technology.
