What is it?
The ASDAN Activities Short Course accredits up to 60 hours of mixed activity. It can be used in most situations, but is particularly suitable for accrediting activities taking place in youth projects that do not fit easily into set challenges.
The Peer Tutoring Short Course is a second award, which offers the opportunity of additional recognition for young people who are supporting others through the Activities Short Course (perhaps having completed it themselves), or who are taking on a leadership role for a group of young people engaged on a specific activity.
The flexibility of ASDAN’s Short Courses means that they can be carried out in a variety of settings, over a time period to suit the individual or co-ordinating centre.
Who is it for?
Young people of all abilities, mainly aged between 13 and 19 (as well as adults and younger learners, where appropriate).
Because Short Courses are multi-level, the focus is on completing challenges and skills development according to individual ability, rather than attainment at a specific level.
