Activity Volunteer Award – Free Certificated Award for Young People Across Devon
Come along to our webinar to find out how your school/youth setting can access the Activity Volunteer Award Programme for your young people for free.
Active Devon have partnered with SLQ Sports Leaders to support and encourage young people to play an active role in volunteering. The Activity Volunteer Award programme provides young people the perfect opportunity to build and test their personal development, inspiring others in their community both inside and out of their education setting.
The new programme of learning is designed to offer young people a pathway into volunteering through building transferable core skills that complement their wider education journey.
Each of the programme’s sessions targets one of five skills from SLQ Sports Leaders’ Skills Framework. Those five skills, which were identified by Youth Employment UK as being the most in-demand by employers, are Self-belief, Communication, Problem Solving, Teamwork and Self-Management.
The sessions have been designed with flexibility in mind and can be delivered face-to-face, or with learners accessing pre-recorded content at home, or a blended approach. Each session is approx. one hour long and can be delivered to suit the needs of the learner/school/organisation.
As learners complete the programme, they can record their progress in their own personal Volunteering Skills Profile, creating an evidence record that demonstrates their growing skills.
This award can be delivered by youth workers, sports coaches, and school staff. We would love for youth and education settings across Devon to offer this to the young people they engage with. The award is fully funded through Active Devon and each person who completes their Volunteer Skills Passport will get a certificated award.
A Teams link to join us will be emailed to you the day before the webinar.
