Why Should You Undertake the ASDAN Award at the LR6?Posted on: 2nd Feb 2021
The Level 3 CoPE Award (Certificate of Personal Effectiveness) is a substantial, nationally recognised qualification in skills development. It enables students to practise, develop and demonstrate six vital skills required for success in higher education, training or employment: teamwork, problem-solving, discussion, research, oral presentation and self-management.
In addition to offering students with the opportunity to accredit the wider enrichment activities that form part of our student experience, the award is worth 16 UCAS points for students entering higher education and incorporates a wide range of activities, from research projects and leadership roles to work experience/volunteer placements and expeditions.
We caught up with one of our students currently undertaking the award, to find out more first-hand:
“The CoPE award has not only been beneficial for my UCAS application and CV, but also provided an array of interesting opportunities beyond my A-Level subjects alongside prospects to develop and enhance my skillset. Throughout the process of the award, activities and tasks have focused on the development of skills such as organisation and teamwork, but most importantly responsibility and independence, which I firmly believe will support my transition into higher education and the workplace.
I would recommend the programme to students who are seeking to make the most of the opportunities available to them, not only to open their eyes to the world around them, but broaden horizons and open doors to a breadth of experiences in our future. For me, my favourite aspect of the programme has been its contribution to my personal development future beyond the school. I have been encouraged and inspired to explore different topics I would not usually have the chance to learn about, whilst utilising meaningful skills and applying them in a real-world context.”
