  • 1. What will I study? The Asdan Youth Award Scheme is a nationally recognised, skills-based course offered at different levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold awards. In Cambridgeshire alone, over 20 secondary schools deliver the course. Each award is based on a series of practical and flexible challenges, which enable you to develop key skills in: Communication ICT Working with others Problem solving Applying number Improving your own learning ASDAN Award Scheme Development and Accreditation Network
  • 2. Employers, training providers and post 16 colleges value key skills and are increasingly looking for evidence of wider social and practical experience. Asdan compliments any combination of GCSE subjects. Asdan is an awarding body, approved by QCA and is currently running in over 4,000 schools and colleges .
  • 3. How will I be assessed? The challenges are based on a credit building system and each section of a challenge is given a credit rating Portfolios are externally moderated and individual feedback on attainment is given. A Bronze Award requires 6 credits A Silver Award requires 12 credits (2 of these can come from the Bronze Award)
  • 4. Who will this course suit? The Asdan Award Scheme is not a GCSE. If you are likely to follow a less academic route in the future and prefer pieces of work broken into small challenges you will prosper. You will also need to be able to work together, be willing to undertake visits outside of school and keep an organised folder of work. You may follow some modules according to your own interests, for example , sports and leisure, technology, local environment, art, work experience, foreign study
