Dynamic Youth Awards

The Dynamic Youth Awards recognise the achievements of young people aged 10+ years.


"The young people at our club love doing a Dynamic Youth Award because they get recognition for their achievements"

- Awards provider

Dynamic Youth Awards are peer assessed awards recognising the contributions and achievements of young people in the 10+ age group.

The awards are easy to use and can be incorporated into existing youth work and school programmes.  Young people are encouraged to self assess and then peer assess each other's achievements, and can use the awards as an access route to the Youth Achievement Awards.

Dynamic Youth Awards are now credit rated on the SCQF by SQA. Find out more here.

Key Features of the Award:
  • They are peer assessed: young people assess and award certificates as part of an Award Group
  • They are credit rated on the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF) at Level 3 by SQA
  • They are non-prescriptive: the awards complement existing quality youth work practice providing a framework, not a programme
  • They encourage and support youth participation: the process encourages young people to take increasing responsibility for their own future
  • They are progressive: the awards encourage continuing participation and increasing responsibility.
