AQA ACCREDITATIONS 6th FORM at James Rennie School Specialist Communication and Interaction College

Course description

The AQA Unit Award Scheme provides the opportunity to give students formal recognition of their success in short units of work across a wide range of subject areas, activities and experiences. The scheme is approved by AQA as a scheme for recording achievement in all non - qualification contexts and for providing interim accreditation of achievement of students following unit based Entry Level qualifications. The scheme allows the use of tailor made units written especially for a group of students (or individual student), so the student can receive the recognition for significant achievement of small steps in a variety of topic areas, activities and experiences. Many of the AQA Units we deliver are written here at James Rennie and are thus tailored to the individual needs of our students. We offer a large range of units for students to choose from. The following units are currently delivered here at James Rennie; All about me; Introduction to coin recognition (unit 1); Coin recognition (unit 2);Money (unit 18); Money (unit 15); Learning names of a small group of people;Communicating choices via photographs;Practical conservation work; Animal Care; Simple car maintenance; Introduction to sound makers and musical instruments; Business enterprise xmas fair and organising a coffee morning; In the community; Community work in a day centre for the elderly; Team enterprise; Introduction to the catering industry; The tree of life; Recognising time; Organising a lunch delivery service;Personal hygiene (units 1&2); Sensory baking; Indoor gardening; Using a coin operated pay phone; Relaxation and tolerance through massage; Participating in discussions; Study of sexually transmitted diseases.
