Support your child to gain a qualification at home

A campaign to help accredit fun activities and to promote wellbeing for parents and young people

FREE Hi5 and Dynamic Youth Awards (DYA) offer a fun, home-based way to learn and earn accreditation for ages 5+ and 10+

Challenge sheets

The Youth Scotland network reaches over 65,000 young people and we know how disruptive and damaging the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic is for parents and their children.

To support their wellbeing, and to recognise the fantastic achievements of young people’s activities during lockdown and beyond, we'd like to offer a discount to parents.

The Hi5 and DYA are wider achievement awards that follow an engaging plan-do-review format. Young people are the primary drivers at each stage, promoting a sense of ownership and achievement in completing an award. Hi5 Awards are aimed at ages 5+ and DYA at ages 10+.

All completed awards receive a certificate.

Youth Awards like Hi5 and DYA are a great way of recognising children and young people's personal achievements which is a key part of Scotland’s Curriculum for Excellence. Recognising personal achievements can have a really positive effect on young people's confidence and motivation and help them connect experiences at home or in their community with all aspects of their school learning. 

Both awards are nationally recognised and are credit rated and levelled by the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) on the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF). The awards can be many young people’s very first qualification!

Thank you for your interest in our Hi5 and Dynamic Youth Award offer.

This proved to be extremely popular and our allocation of 1000 free challenge sheets was very quickly used up.

If you are still interested in accessing our qualifications for your child/children, for a limited time only, we can offer you a 50% discount on all challenge sheets purchased before 31st July 2020.

You will receive an editable PDF challenge sheet for your child/children to complete and the purchase price also includes a certificate that will be posted to your home address on completion of the award.
