SQA showcases Wider Achievement Awards
Wider Achievement Awards are available in a number subjects such as employability, enterprise and volunteering skills. They complement SQA’s National Qualifications, giving young people an additional study option while at school or a qualification that can be delivered by an employer or a training provider.
We produced a series of short films that showcase the value and flexibility of our Wider Achievement Awards. The films demonstrate a variety of ways the awards are being delivered and the role they play in developing and enhancing learners’ skills:
- Morrison Construction has adopted SQA’s Employability Award as part of its corporate social responsibility strategy, giving young people at school a meaningful insight into the construction sector.
- Dumfries and Galloway Council introduced the Employability Award into its training programme to support young people with additional support needs who are looking to enter the work place.
- Aberdeen City Council included SQA’s volunteering skills award as part of their Cultivate programme, which helps adult learners develop employability skills within the arts and creative industries.
