ASDAN Enterprise Short Course

A great course for learning and experiencing enterprise as well as developing entrepreneurial skills and knowledge

Focus of the course

This course is for young people of all abilities, mainly aged between 13 and 19

ASDAN Short Courses are multi-level, and the focus is on completing challenges and skills development according to individual ability, rather than attainment at a specific level

How learning happens

Learning takes place through completion of activities that learners are involved in selecting for themselves working towards their own goals for the course. Activities are recorded in the best manner that works for the learner (e.g. powerpoint, writing or drawing) and learners are involved in reviewing their own work and deciding what has worked well and what they would do differently next time

Key modules

The key modules in this course cover entrepreneurial skills, generating enterprising ideas, enterprise planning, enterprise and business, enterprise in action, and enterprise evaluation. Sample activities include figuring out our own entrepreneurial skills, researching national or international businesses, figuring out the differences between different types of company, coming up with enterprise ideas, completing a mini-research project, planning for a business and thinking about how it could be put into action
