Award Scheme Development and Accreditation Network (ASDAN) is a charitable social enterprise with awarding body status. They offer programmes and qualifications in a flexible manner to accredit skills for learning and employment as well as life skills.
The Trust has registered as an ASDAN centre and will initially offer learning to service users across the Forensic BDU.
The project allows disadvantaged and excluded groups to access mainstream education opportunities through a wide range of different courses.
Academic and vocational course qualifications gained through the ASDAN scheme also sit alongside work already delivered by the Trust and would allow participants to gain a qualification on the back of existing projects.
