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’.



CVQO (Cadet Vocational Qualifications Organisations) is a UK education charity and learning provider, accrediting the skills young people and their adult volunteer instructors develop at uniformed youth groups such as the MOD Cadet Forces, St John Ambulance, Fire and Police Cadets.

Through CVQO, young people can gain a qualification that validates what they have learned in their youth group, increasing the opportunities they have to progress to further education or employment. Our learners can start as early as 13 with a BTEC Level 1 (SCQF Level 4), with opportunities for progression, and as adult volunteers, to gain an Institute of Leadership and Management or City & Guilds qualification.
