ASDAN is both a curriculum development organization and an examination board, which provides a wide variety of courses, resources and qualifications that teachers use to recognize and reward activities undertaken by young people outside of their formal academic subject work. ASDAN develops and accredit skills for learning, employment and living. It was founded 36 years ago and now works with 6,000 schools, colleges and education providers across the UK. Its headquarters are in Bristol, England.
