The Activity Volunteer Award Programme is a free certificated award for young people across Devon.
Active Devon has partnered with SLQ (Sports Leadership Qualifications) Sports Leaders to support and encourage young people to play an active role in volunteering. The Activity Volunteer Award Programme provides young people with the perfect opportunity to build and test their personal development, inspiring others in their community both inside and out of their educational 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’ Skill 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.
When are the sessions?
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.
Who delivers the sessions?
This award can be delivered by youth workers, sports coaches and school staff.
This award is fully funded through Active Devon and each person who completes their Volunteer Skills Passport will receive a certificated award.
