Youth Achievement Awards offer significant opportunities for young people to develop the four Curriculum for Excellence capacities: successful learners, confident individuals, effective contributors and responsible citizens. They recognize young people's contributions in a variety of settings including youth work, volunteering, active citizenship, and formal education.

Aimed at young people aged 14+, the Awards recognize four levels of responsibility taken by young people participating in activities that interest them. Bronze is about young people taking part, at Silver young people assist – sharing responsibility with others, at Gold they take individual responsibility to organize, and at Platinum they undertake training and lead.

The Award does not come with a programme; instead, the open framework allows learning providers to mold the Award around existing youth work and school programmes.

 

                           

 

Dynamic Youth Awards

Dynamic Youth Awards are peer assessed awards recognizing the contributions and achievements of young people in the 10 to 14 age group.

The awards are easy to use and can be incorporated into existing youth work and school programmes. Young people are encouraged to self assess and then peer assess each other's achievements, and can use the awards as an access route to the Youth Achievement Awards.

Key Features of the Award:

  • They are peer assessed: young people assess and award certificates as part of an Award Group
  • They are externally accredited by ASDAN, the Award Scheme Development and Accreditation Network
  • They are credit rated on the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF) at Level 3 by SQA
  • They are non-prescriptive: the awards complement existing quality youth work practice providing a framework, not a programme
  • They encourage and support youth participation: the process encourages young people to take increasing responsibility for their own future
  • They are progressive: the awards encourage continuing participation and increasing responsibility

YoMo has supported youth and community groups to deliver 365 Dynamic Youth Awards in 2010/11 if you would like any more information on this service contact linda@yomo-online .co.uk.
