asdan resources needed!!

Discussion in 'PSHE' started by poorla, Oct 15, 2009.

  1. Hi,
    I have just started a new job teaching ASDAN Key Steps at Y9 and Cope at Y11. I need ideas and advice for the Key Steps. I have a group of boys with learning difficulties and behavioural problems and need some ideas for projects that will engage them. The Key Steps is taught as a 'Lifeskills' lesson.
    I would be really grateful for any suggestions on how I could make it more intersting and relavent for the group.


  2. Hi
    I am sure you will have a great time teaching both Key Steps and CoPE. There are similarities between them in that Key Steps has many challenges that are a KS 3 version of CoPE. If you have been on the CoPE workshop this will really help you. There is also a workshop for Key Skills that you might find useful. The beauty of Key Steps is that you can spend as long as you wish on each challenge and claim up to 3 certificates for each 30 hours of challenges completed. I would start by choosing the challenges you feel you can have the most fun with to engage the students. If you call or email ASDAN they have staff who are designated to giving advice and they would be more than happy to help you.

  10. Hi Darran,
    I don't suppose you'd be willing to share your resources a little bit more? I have an interview next week and need to teach some PSHE based on an ASDAN lesson, but I don't have anything to use! Any help would be fab!

  11. Hi Darran
    Whilst searching for ASDAN resources saw your message from last year! First year teaching PSHE and ASDAN Key Steps, started with planning and resources given to me but not going very well. So I am going to choose different challenges and start again. Were the resources you were kindly sharing, Key Steps related? On identity unit this term, Health (Sex and Relationships) next term and Citizenship in the Summer. Any resources you are willing to share would be greatly appreciated.
    Kind regards
