YASS (Young Applicants in Schools Scheme)
YASS courses are ONLY OPEN TO S6 PUPILS and can be added on to your timetable. They do not sit in options blocks and consist of you working in your own time to achieve credits. YASS courses are run by the Open University and allow you to learn University level modules alongside your studies.
YASS is designed to bridge the gap between school and university, college or employment and helps motivated students stand out from the crowd. It encourages independent learning and builds confidence. Key skills like time management and accessing electronic resources are developed.
