ASDAN (Award Scheme Development and Accreditation Network) is a not-for-profit, curriculum development organisation and internationally recognised awarding body based in the United Kingdom. ASDAN offers a wide range of curriculum programs and qualifications for all abilities and age groups. These flexible and engaging programmes and qualifications help young people develop skills for learning, work and life.

MESC has been delivering ASDAN since 2020 with students undertaking modules from New Horizons, Transition Challenge and Towards Independence curriculum programs. We also offer ASDAN Short Courses, portfolio-based programmes designed to accredit up to 60 hours of activity and skills development across a range of topics and curriculum areas. Student ASDAN modules participation is decided at student pathway planning meetings held by the teacher with parent and carers.
