Awards Network Awards

The Awards Network is made up of some of the most noteworthy award providers to young people in Scotland.

The Awards Network is a forum of providers of youth work awards providing non-formal learning opportunities for young people,. Its members work together to raise awareness of the range and impact of youth work awards that accredit learning and achievements of young people aged 10 to 25. Its membership includes the largest youth organisations in Scotland along with a range of niche award providers.

The Purpose of Awards Network is to ‘Promote and recognise the achievements of young people gained through youth work awards’.

The Vision of the Awards Network is that ‘Youth Work Awards are widely valued and accepted as critical evidence of every young person’s learning and achievement’.


Youth Scotland

Youth Scotland is a membership organisation, supporting over 1,600 youth groups and delivering services that help over 74,000 young people to learn, succeed and make positive contributions to their communities. We are the national charity for the support and delivery of community based youth work and our mission is to support young people to achieve their full potential. The Youth Scotland membership, led by over 8,000 youth workers and volunteers, is diverse, ranging from small rural youth groups to large urban projects – the common goal that we all share is better outcomes for young people. Youth Scotland's work is expansive and varied, but can be put into four key areas:

Membership - we're a membership organisation, comprised of Area Association partners and youth groups of all sizes.

Programmes and projects - from national initiatives to local projects, we help in the development and support of those working with young people.

Training and Events – we offer a range of training for full time, part time, voluntary youth workers and young people

Youth Awards - through our awards, delivered through our members, CLD partners, schools and others, young people achieve and gain accreditation (SCQF levels 2-7) for their non-formal learning, supporting national efforts to close the poverty related attainment gap and increasing young people’s skills for learning, work and life.
