Support your child to gain a qualification at home

Posted on

Youth Scotland have made 1000 free resources available to parents and carers to help them to support their child to gain a qualification at home.  The Hi5 and Dynamic Youth Awards (DYA) are wider achievement awards that follow an engaging and fun plan-do-review format. Hi5 Awards are aimed at children aged 5+ and DYA at age 10+.

All completed awards receive a certificate. Both awards are nationally recognised and are credit rated and levelled by the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) on the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF).

The resources will be made available to the first 1000 applicants on a first come first served basis. Click here for further information and to access this free resource.
