At Grooveschool participants work through various AQA units that are already in existence as well as helping develop new ones in line with advancing technologies and interests. The Unit Award Scheme (UAS) is a unique recording of achievement scheme, rather than a qualification. It offers everyone the opportunity to have their achievements formally recognised - no matter what this is, how old they are, how long it takes or how small the learning step might be.
Our approach is that some subjects aren't readily available to study in the curricula and we use this resource so that the participants are recognised for their attained knowledge, skill and effort.
"We have been using the UAS for many years and believe it to be a fantastic resource. It allows us to supplement our pupils' qualifications and is a brilliant way for them to achieve success." - Amanda Barrett, Joint UAS Co-ordinator at Warren House PRU.
