Youth Work Award Programmes

Recognising and celebrating young people’s achievements is a huge part of our youth work practice. If you’re supporting young people through youth work to take climate action, think about sustainability, connect with nature and the environment or any of the other Learning for Sustainability themes, it is worth thinking about how you can recognise the young person’s learning journey & achievements.  

In Scotland there are a significant numbers of awards programmes that can be used by youth workers. The best place to start is the Awards Network which is made up of award providers and offers an overview of the many non-formal learning opportunities and award programmes available for young people.  

For more information on the Awards Network get in touch with our Youth Work and Schools Manager, Marielle Bruce on
