Community Learning and Development

Youth Achievement Award

Youth Achievement Awards offer a peer assessed approach to recognising and accrediting young people's achievements aged 14 plus.

They enable young people to develop their capacities as successful learners, confident individuals, responsible citizens and effective contributors in a variety of settings including youth work, volunteering, active citizenship, alternative curriculum and formal education.

The Awards recognise 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 ORGANISE, and at Platinum they undertake training and LEAD.

The awards can be accessed through a Participating Unit.
