Youth Scotland Awards

We have 3 different awards that children and young people aged 5+ can be involved in completing. They are the Hi5 Award, Dynamic Youth Awards (DYA) and Youth Achievement Awards (YAA). All awards are credit rated and levelled on the Scottish Credit Qualifications Framework (SCQF), which means that they can be compared to more formal qualifications such as those gained at college or school. Find out more about them.
