ASDAN LifeSkills Challenge

ASDAN LifeSkills is a virtual program that provides learners with a wide-range of exciting challenges.

The challenges promote a variety of different skills and cover a wide range of different topics – they are usually about being able to do things and they can all be adapted to meet the individual needs of the children.

The programme includes a comprehensive set of challenges, such as personal finance, number handling, teamwork, and more.
