what is cas
What is CAS?
  • Creativity, action, service (CAS) is at the heart of the Diploma Programme and should continue on a regular basis for at least 18 months. Involves these four criteria:
    • Real, purposeful activities, with significant outcomes
    • Personal challenge- tasks must extend the student and be achievable in scope
    • Thoughtful considerations, such as planning, reviewing progress, reporting
    • Reflection on outcomes and personal learning
  • All activities must be supervised by an adult (relatives do not count).
what is not cas
What is NOT CAS?
  • IT IS NOT ABOUT COUNTING HOURS
  • An activity for personal reward, financial or benefit-in-kind
  • Simple, tedious and repetitive work
  • A passive pursuit, e.g. museum, theater, exhibition, concert visits
  • Part of family or religious duty
  • Work experience that only benefits the student
  • Fundraising with no clearly defined end in sight
  • Working in an elderly or children\'s home when you:
    • Have no contact at all with the elderly or children
    • Actually do no service for other people/animals/environment
  • An activity where there is no responsible adult on site to evaluate your performance
