ASDAN provides a range of qualifcations that aim to improve the skills of learners aged 14 and over through developing high-quality qualifications at Entry level and level 1 in the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF).
Through learning programmes based on progression pathways, FL reform will increase the participation, achievement and progression of learners.
Foundation Learning will:
enable schools to create programmes that will engage learners, supported by qualifications that meet their needs
provide clear progression pathways that will help learners progress towards and achieve higher qualifications, employment or independent living
establish more flexible and coherent qualifications that recognise achievement at Entry level and level 1
increase access to accreditation to help motivate and reward learners by formally recognising their achievements.
Foundation Learning progression pathways are specifications for designing personalised learning programmes.
