SIDE has extended the range of ASDAN courses available to Year 11 and 12 students in 2018.

ASDAN is an international non-profit organisation that develops curriculum and provides a range of courses covering preparation for life and work. These courses are targeted at students pursuing a Foundations or Preliminary pathway in their senior secondary studies.

Combined with a vocational pathway, the ASDAN courses also cater for students experiencing difficulties with literacy and numeracy, engagement concerns and/or requiring support with their learning.

These engaging courses provide a SCSA endorsed alternative pathway which can be completed over a semester or a year. Courses have a one-unit equivalence towards the Western Australian Statement of Student Achievement. Students receive a Certificate of Recognition from ASDAN Australia. Students choosing  these courses will enjoy the success of learning.

Vocational Tasters

Short courses

Flexible, portfolio-based programs covering a range of topics and curriculum areas. The focus is on completing challenges and skills development according to individual ability in formal and informal settings rather than attainment at a specific level. New courses include Animal Care, Enterprise, Hair and Beauty, Living Independently, Roadwise and Personal Finance.
