Unit Award Scheme

The Unit Award Scheme (UAS) offers learners the opportunity to have their achievements formally recognised with a certificate issued by AQA each time a short unit is successfully completed.

There are no limits on:

  • what can be accredited, as long as it is worthwhile and meaningful for the learner
  • who can achieve, in terms of age or ability
  • how long it takes to achieve or when this takes place
  • how learning can be evidenced.

Flexibility is key with UAS, and our motto is 'Achievement for All'. We encourage and support learners to show what they can do, rather than what they can't.

See the AQA website for more information.
