ASDAN and Life Living Skills

ASDAN Intent

Our vision is to transform life chances through learning by enabling all learners to discover, develop and make full use of their abilities. We do this by working with other professionals to foster the personal, social and work-related abilities of learners. We believe that all learners should have the opportunity to discover, develop and make use of their abilities. This is the way to raise aspirations, address inequality and improve social mobility. We intend to help and support pupils to convert potential into ability. We believe the development of personal, social and work-related abilities is vital for learners of all abilities. We want all learners, in particular those who face barriers to learning to benefit from ASDAN’s curriculum programmes and qualifications.


Life and Living Skills Intent

Our aim is to promote the value and raise the profile of Life and Living Skills across BVGA. At BVGA we aim to create a happy, purposeful and supportive environment where students are enabled to become successful learners, develop their full potential and achieve the highest educational standards they can. Life and Living Skills equips students with the knowledge, understanding, skills and strategies required to live healthy, safe, productive and balanced lives. Life and Living Skills contributes to personal development by helping students to build their confidence and self – esteem. Developing an understanding of themselves, empathy and the ability to work with others will help students to form and maintain good relationships, develop the essential skills for future employability and better enjoy and manage their lives.
