The Junior Award scheme for schools is a holistic accredited learning programme for children and young people.
It develops interpersonal skills, communication, problem solving and teamwork, and builds self-confidence and wellbeing. A key aim has been to meet the challenges of the transition from primary to secondary. The JASS award is progressive, with increasing commitment, learning and challenge.
JASS is structured into four sections, designed to stretch different aspects of developing confident individuals.
My Interests – developing an interest or learning a new skill
Get Active, Stay Active – taking part in sport and physical activity
Me and My World – a community or environmental project
Adventure – outdoor activity and learning, including team work and problem solving
Each of these sections can be constructed to meet the needs of the individuals or to tie in with local interests or projects. Progress on the award is logged either on-line via eJASS by getting young people to further their IT skills, or as a hard-copy personal JASS folder.
Edsential can provide support for all sections of the programme. For further details on the timescales for each section, please click here
