Accreditation

ASDAN

Pencalenick School is a registered centre for the delivery of ASDAN Programmes and Qualifications.

We offer ASDAN (Award Scheme Development and Accreditation network) as part of both our key stage three and four curriculum.  The programmes and qualifications are widely recognised for providing an engaging curriculum that empowers students through personalised learning and choice.

The school has developed the use of ASDAN to support our delivery of a holistic and balanced approach to personalised learning for each student, no matter what their ability. It offers us an opportunity to formally identify small steps of achievement towards a larger goal through a framework of activities aimed to develop, recognise and accredit skills in independent living, developing friendships and relationships, good health, accessing communities, employment and work-related skills. 

Students participate in a wide range of activities ranging from:

  • Horticulture
  • Sports and Fitness
  • Food Technology
  • Creative Arts
  • Independent Living
  • Employability
  • Out in the Community
  • PSHE
  • Core subjects and class based activities

Our curriculum is developed to provide meaningful opportunities for learners to recognise personal and social development through their achievements, enhancing self-confidence, promoting ambition and enabling them to engage with and contribute to their local communities.

The use of ASDAN helps us to equip our students with personal, social and transferable educational skills to help them thrive not only during their time within Pencalenick, but also for preparing them for their progression into further education and adulthood.
