The Awards Network recently released a short film – a case study of KYTHE, Kinross, a Youth Scotland Member Group, and their journey with Youth Scotland’s Awards.

The video explores what young people who participate in awards get from undertaking them, and how awards meet the needs of young people who have different styles of learning.

Abbie, a member of KYTHE, explains how she completed a Youth Scotland Award having just left school and whilst she was uncertain of what to do next.

The skills that I thought I could develop were much more relevant to me than the qualifications I had gained so far.

The Awards Network also spoke to youth workers Barry and Gillian to learn about why they introduced Youth Scotland awards to their youth work programme, the challenges in doing so and the resulting benefits as well as Steven Greig, Development Manager from the Gannochy Trust:

“High quality youth work happens throughout Scotland in every locality that youth work is provided. In order to ensure that we see equality outcome from that youth work, we believe an accredited non-formal learning process provides those key parts of ensuring young people opt-in to plan their involvement, they deliver and are recognised for their delivery, but most importantly, they reflect on what that learning has been.”

Make sure you watch the new short video above to learn more and hear KYTHE’s story!

They're a really good opportunity to learn more about yourself and be confident in yourself and what you can do.
