Youth Scotland offers introductory training events for Hi5 and Dynamic Youth Awards. This training is highly recommended for anyone interested in supporting young people to gain a Hi5 Award.
The introductory training provides workers, teachers, parents or any interested party with an understanding of the Hi5 Awards and how they can be used as part of existing or new activities to recognise and accredit young people's achievements.

A challenge sheet is required for each young person to record their information and provide evidence for completion of their challenge in a fun, colourful format. These can be purchased here. There is also an alternative challenge sheet design which is suitable for older young people. Each challenge sheet costs £6 - this covers the cost of assessment and certification.
Youth Scotland has three activity toolkits which complement the awards. These are the games toolkit which can be used to set challenges themed around physical activity, the STEM toolkit which can be used to set challenges themed around science, technology, engineering and maths, and the arts toolkit which can be used to set challenges themed around arts and crafts. These can be purchased here. The toolkits cost £10.
I gave the toolkit to new leaders in a Brownie unit who hadn’t been involved with youth work before. The leaders used the toolkit to run fun activities and now the Brownies regularly ask the leaders for the toolkit and use it to choose and lead their own games.
