- Certificate of Personal Effectiveness (CoPE)
CoPE is a Level 1 Award run by ASDAN for Y10 and Y11 pupils.
Pupils are offered the following modules (although not all will be available every year).
- Citizenship and Community
- Sport and Leisure
- Independent Living
- The Environment
- Vocational Preparation
- Health and Fitness
- Work Related Learning and Enterprise
- Science and Technology
- International Links
- Expressive Arts
- Beliefs and Values
The modules are based upon projects designed and managed by students with the support of staff. The Award is moderated by ASDAN and pupils are assessed based upon a folder of evidence which they gather during the course.
Each Module will be assessed based upon the following standards:
- Working with Others
- Improving Own Performance
- Problem Solving
- Planning and Carrying out Research
- Presenting Information
The students will follow a “Plan, Do Review” method to support their learning where they will create an idea, give it a go and then decide if any improvements could be made.
This program will effectively support students when preparing for life beyond school and support their development of the skills necessary for adult life.
