The Certificate of Personal Effectiveness is a nationally recognised qualification outcome of the ASDAN programmes. The qualifications offer imaginative ways of accrediting young people’s activities.

Objective of the qualification

Level 1 and Level 2 Certificate of Personal Effectiveness is a substantial and wide-ranging qualification the purpose of which is to enable candidates to develop and demonstrate a range of personal, key and employability skills, to broaden their experience and manage their learning in a variety of real life contexts. It therefore aims to teach candidates to understand, take responsibility for and learn from rich activities, rather than simply to experience them. This quantifies and formalises their preparedness to progress into further education, employment, or vocational training and apprenticeships.
