Moorbridge PRU working in Partnership with Newcastle United Foundation
This ASDAN course started in September 2015 and complete March 2016
In total 13 pupils from KS3 and KS4 enrolled onto the ASDAN course with 10 pupils completing the full course.
This was a new ASDAN course themed through football facilitated by Newcastle United Foundation and trailed by Moorbridge pupils, the course consisted of 20 x 1.5hr sessions.
This Football Short Course was developed in association with the Football League Trust. It provided an opportunity to develop and accredit football knowledge and skills through a range of challenges.
The flexibility of ASDAN's Short Courses means they can be carried out in a variety of settings, over a time period to suit the individual or co-ordinating centre (up to 60 hours). Challenge descriptions can be interpreted and adapted according to the situation. Because Short Courses are multi-level, the focus is on completing challenges and skills development according to individual ability, rather than attainment at a specific level.
During the course pupils were filmed by BT Sport who was one of the sponsors of the course, the footage was aired live on BT Sports 7th November. This short film has also been used as part of a themed presentation (How can sport make a difference in Education) in a conference called Schools United, housed at St James’s Park 10th March for schools across the North East.
The course finished with a visit to St James Park on the 1st March to complete all written work necessary to gain the ASDAN qualification. There will be an awards ceremony for successful pupils to receive their qualifications at St James’s Park with high profile first team players in attendance.
The Newcastle United Foundation compile an Annual Review around all activities/events and statistics of whom they have worked with throughout the year, in this year’s review the partnership between Newcastle United Foundation and Moorbridge PRU has been highlighted and is promoted in the centre fold of a 16 page glossy publication.

Making a Point Project.
Forward assist were awarded funding to work on projects which will have a community benefit, one of these projects is to work with young people experiencing low self-esteem or lack of confidence due to their personal experiences of being; the victims or perpetrators of bullying. This will be ‘Veteran Led’ project that instils Respect, Discipline, Commitment, Confidence, Courage and Citizenship via active engagement in sporting activity, in this case through fencing.
Iain Aberdeen Head Coach at Newcastle Fencing & Sports Trust overseen the project. Iain has delivered similar projects in recent years and was confident that the 4x2 hour sessions would teach the basics of:-
Create a team dynamic and improve physical fitness,
General health & mental wellbeing and have a positive outcome for all participants.
A typical session would consist of a warm up games, team activities, fencing footwork, topical discussion, blade work and then competitive bouts. There were also written work sheets looking at key areas of fencing and the development of the fencing technique.
On the 3rd week pupils were given a presentation around courage from an ex veteran who works with Forward Assist
