Awards Introductory Training

Youth Scotland offer a series of Awards Introductory Training Events which are open to anyone interested in supporting young people to gain an Award or simply looking to find out more about the Awards.

The training provides workers with an understanding of the rationale behind the Awards and how they complement their existing youth work practice. They will gain a working knowledge of the Youth Achievement Awards and Dynamic Youth Awards, enabling them to effectively promote, support and deliver these Awards within their youth clubs or groups.

Please note that this training is a requirement for anyone wishing to deliver Youth Achievement Awards with young people and recommended for anyone wishing to deliver Dynamic Youth Awards with young people.

There are 12/20 training places at each of these Events and these allocated on a first come basis. The cost is £70 per training place. This cost includes all training materials, refreshments and lunch.

Operating Agencies are entitled to an annual one day Training Event delivered by Youth Scotland as part of their registration agreement and many deliver their own in-house training. If you would prefer to access this training through your Operating Agency please contact them directly for details.

Agency Assessor Training

Following on from Youth Achievement Awards Introductory Training, Agency Assessor Training forms part of the criteria for workers looking to take on the role of Agency Assessor within their Operating Agency to support and train workers and to quality assure the Awards.

Agency Assessor Training enables workers to effectively carry out a quality assurance and staff support and training role within their Operating Agency. It develops; understanding of the requirements for completing each Award level; understanding of quality assurance and accountability in relation to the Awards; and an awareness of the common issues that arise when moderating the Awards. This training is accessed at an Standardisation and Internal Verification Meeting and therefore must be coordinated through and authorised by the Operating Agency Main Contact.
