The Awards Network is a forum of providers of youth work awards (including Saltire Awards) which provide 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 new website is a useful one stop shop of national youth awards in Scotland and you can now download a copy of the recently published 4th edition of Amazing Things – a guide to youth awards in Scotland.
The Awards Network has now launched Awards Aware – a scheme to demonstrate the value that non-formal learning brings to young people. Organisations and individuals are invited to subscribe to the Awards Aware scheme declaring that they agree to a core set of principles in their interactions and relationships with young people. Awards Aware organisations are permitted, and encouraged, to use the Awards Aware brand mark on their signage, stationery and digital properties.
We hope that TSIs will join the community of individuals and organisations that are registering to become Awards Aware.
