RoadWise Programme (Asdan Awards)

RoadWise Programme (Asdan Awards)

Developed in partnership with Cheshire and Warrington Connexions, the ASDAN RoadWise Short Course can accredit up 60 hours of activities relating to the consequences of dangerous driving, dangers on the road, the law, transport and the environment, vehicle maintenance and vulnerable road users.


The course provides a focus for work with young people around issues of road use.


The flexibility of ASDAN's Short Courses means they can be carried out in a variety of settings, over a time period to suit the individual or co-ordinating centre. Challenge descriptions can be interpreted and adapted according to the situation.

Who is it for?

Young people of all abilities, mainly aged between 13 and 19+. 

Because Short Courses are multi-level, the focus is on completing challenges and skills development according to individual ability, rather than attainment at a specific level.
