What is the Unit Award Scheme (UAS)?

Achievement for All

The Unit Award Scheme (UAS) is a 'can do' accreditation scheme for recognising learning and success. It rewards participants for personal progress and achievements which are often not recognised by more formal qualifications.

Used with students of all ages and abilities, the Scheme covers virtually all subject areas and activities from Pre-entry to Level 3.

As an on-demand scheme, students complete units and receive certificates throughout the year.

Once registered, you can:

  • use any of the 10,000 units on the website
  • write your own units
  • amend existing units for your particular needs.
