The Community Achievement Awards are context-independent and designed to support, recognise and accredit learning and achievement in a community setting. They are designed for delivery by partners in liaison with Glasgow Kelvin College, with submissions assessed by the College’s CLD team.
The Community Achievement Awards framework provides formal recognition and additional personal value to volunteering, community based and social justice based projects, recognising the impact of collective efforts in supporting community based organisations and groups and supporting people in development of their personal and group capacity.
These Awards provide people supporting their communities with the opportunity to progress with their own journey and also the space to encourage others around them into a learning or personal development capacity.
The Glasgow Kelvin College Community Achievement Awards are designed to allow people aged 12+ involved in, assisting in the delivery of, delivering or developing community activities the opportunity to design and gain recognition for their own learning regarding personal milestones and achievements in partnership with varying levels of community participation. They support volunteers to plan and evaluate their contribution and involvement in community activities, providing them with a recognised qualification and helping them progress to further learning or into employment.
Community Achievemnt Awards at SCQF Levels 4 and 5 require 40 hours of learning. The Award at SCQF Level 6 requires 60 hours and at level 7 requires 80 hours of learning.
