Our Learning for Life (LLfL) curriculum is unique to us here at Longcause and has proved to be very successful in developing our pupils' social skills and life skills. We have spent some time exploring options available to us in order to accredit the learning taking place in this area at Key Stage 4 without detracting away from the success of the curriculum. At present we have found that the ASDAN syllabus on 'Personal and Social Development' meets the needs of our learners whilst still allowing the fundamental elements of the LLfL curriculum to be delivered and learned. We have had a successful year and we were able to accredit our learners with Entry Level 3. We are continuing to build on this and aim for Level 1 this year.
We are also delivering ASDAN Bronze, Silver and Gold awards in PSD for some of our pupils accessing a more vocational approach to the curriculum.
