Congratulations to all service users at The Richardson Partnership for Care who gained ASDAN certificates in 2016. There was a grand total of 41 certificates awarded.
ASDAN is the Awards Scheme Development Accreditation Network, which provides courses to thousands of training providers. The courses offer flexible learning opportunities and enable skills to be recognised with accredited and independently verified qualifications. The Richardson Partnership for Care became an officially recognised ASDAN accreditation centre in May 2012.
All service users, whether they have an acquired brain injury or learning disabilities, can benefit from the ASDAN courses. As well as recognising and increasing skills, they provide a sense of achievement and fulfilment. They can also increase motivation and provide encouragement for further learning.
Five certificates in ‘Independent Living’ and ten certificates in ‘Myself and Others’ were awarded to service users with learning difficulties. Twenty six certificates were awarded to service users with acquired brain injuries. The subjects were: Independent Living (7), Myself and Others (15), Numeracy Skills – Introduction (2) and Numeracy Skills – Progression (2).
Everyone worked very hard and most pass levels were either ‘no help’ or ‘spoken help’, with two being experience recorded.
