- Awards provider
Dynamic Youth Awards are peer assessed awards recognising the contributions and achievements of young people in the 10 to 14 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.
