AQA Accreditation at Knight Farm
The Unit Award Scheme (UAS) with AQA offers learners the opportunity to have their achievements formally recognised with a certificate issued by AQA, each time a short unit is successfully completed.
Knights Care Farm is a registered centre to participate in the AQA accreditation Unit Award scheme.
We are able to assist all our students & service users to learn on the farm and achieve a certificate, recognised formally by the AQA, for all the skills acquired.
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 for Knights Care Farm due to the range of individuals who join us on the Farm. The UAS motto is 'Achievement for All'. Using the award scheme we can encourage and support learners to show them what they can do, rather than what they can't.
The AQA Unit Award Scheme is invaluable as it is an important pathway for our service users to receive accreditation for their achievements. A vast range of units which are level differentiated, allows accreditation to be accessible to all individuals regardless of their ability.
AQA have trained our staff to allow amendments and the ability to write our own units, we are able to expand and customise units to service users individual learning interests and needs.
To join the scheme there is a one off 'student charge' in addition to the daily service user rate, there after the service user can work towards as many skills as they wish at their own pace.
Once a unit is complete it takes approximately 2 weeks to be approved by the AQA and to get a certificate.
