ELC qualifications

Summer 2016 will be the last opportunity to enter students for the majority of our Entry Level Certificates (ELCs), with the exception of English, maths and science. We have redeveloped the ELC qualifications in these three subjects and the new specifications are available to download.

Entry Level learning through the Unit Award Scheme (UAS)

The Unit Award Scheme (UAS) is a flexible and cost-effective scheme where students receive certificates in recognition for completing short units of work or activity. UAS and ELCs are closely linked with units already written that mirror units from ELCs, and examples of these are on our dedicated UAS page links with AQA qualifications.

In addition, there are 1000s of other UAS units, not directly linked to ELCs, which you can use to build a bespoke learning programme by using the unit search.

If you have any questions, please email unitawardscheme@aqa.org.uk.
