ASDAN Bronze Award

Aims

The aims of the ASDAN Bronze Award is to offer imaginative ways of developing, recording and certificating a wide range of young people's personal qualities, abilities and achievements, as well as introducing them to new activities and challenges.

The programme will ensure that students:-

  • Take pride in achievement and commitment to learning
  • Develop self-confiendence, self awareness and understanding of how to be a successful learner
  • Are well prepared to respect others and contribute to wider society as part of their personal development.

Content

The programme is portfolio-based and is certified upon completion.

Students are required to gain 6 vredits from a choice of different modules. The main area of learning for the modules concentrates on teamwork, learning, coping with problems, use of Maths, use of English and use of ICT.

Modules studies at the Academy so far have included topics such as; healthy eating, hazards, road safety, first aid, birthday trip, weekly shopping list, planning a journer, dealing with weights, film reviews and creating a questionnaire.

Assessment

Assessment of all work is in accordance with the ASDAN standards. Each module is specific in its wording and needs to be broken down in all aspects to ensure that it is wholly completed.

Once the programme is completed, an internal moderation system will need to be in place at the Academy, which will moderate the teacher marking and ensure that the module requirement has been satisfied. Once the internal moderation has taken place, the individual portfolios will be moderated by ASDAN, either by post or at an external moderation meeting. Upon successful completion of this moderation, students work will be certificated.

The Academy's marking policy is adhered to at all times

Evaluation

The ASDAN Bronze Award is awarded a pass once all modules are completed along with the student book and a successful moderation has taken place. The ASDAN Bronze Award is an ideal programme for KS3 students as modules can be completed in an order to sit individual learning needs.
