16+ Personal Progress

Students with lower ability are working from the ASDAN Personal Progress Units.  They are experiencing activities on the theme of Engaging with world around you.  The activities are based around the three areas of engagement: with people, events and objects (each worth 3 credits).  Students achieve the credits, which can accrue to qualifications e.g  credits for an award qualification.  The main focus for the students is to encourage them to interact with the stimuli and evoke responses.
