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.
