Our Citizenship Short Course accredits between 10 and 60 hours of citizenship activity.
The flexibility of this ASDAN 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.
This Short Course can be completed using the workbook or is available for learners to complete online through the e-portfolio system.
Learners log in to complete challenges, record skills development and upload evidence. Tutors can view learner progress and sign off work, leaving feedback as needed.
Who is it for?
Young people of all abilities, mainly aged 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.
