Join the community of individuals and organisations that are registering to become Awards Aware to demonstrate the value that non-formal learning brings to young people, those that support them in learning and achievement, parents and carers as well as employers.
Increasing take-up of youth awards that complement or provide an alternative to formal qualifications is challenging traditional understanding of learning and learning outcomes, blurring the distinction between attainment and achievement. Awareness of youth awards, along with understanding what they entail and the outcomes they can deliver, is essential to developing recognition of the whole young person who presents for employment or higher education destinations.
Demonstrate your awareness by becoming Awards Aware today!
