Awards Introductory Training
The training provides workers with an understanding of the rationale behind the awards and how they complement their existing youth work practice. They will gain a working knowledge of the Hi5, Dynamic Youth Awards (DYA) and Youth Achievement Awards (YAA), enabling them to effectively promote, support and deliver these awards within their youth clubs, schools or community groups.
Please note that this training is a requirement for anyone wishing to deliver YAAs with young people and recommended for anyone wishing to deliver Hi5 or DYA with young people.
There are two sessions available – Hi5 and Dynamic Youth training which will take place in the morning (£45) and then this is continued to cover the Youth Achievement Awards in the afternoon. The full day training costs £70 and includes lunch. You cannot attend for the afternoon session only.
