SQA Award in Volunteering Skills at SCQF Levels 3, 4 & 5


These Awards are about learning through volunteering. The Awards seek to give individuals the opportunity of gaining a Scottish qualification which recognises their contribution to volunteering and the learning they gain as a result of being involved in activities additional to their formal learning.

The Awards enable candidates to apply and develop their skills and knowledge in a volunteering capacity. Candidates will learn about the context of volunteering; plan a volunteering placement; review and reflect on their own skills during and after their volunteering experience; review the impact of their experience; and undertake an investigation of a particular aspect of volunteering, relating this to possible future volunteering activity.

The Awards are available at SCQF levels 3, 4 and 5 offer flexibility to a wide range of potential candidates, providing opportunities for all volunteers regardless of academic experience or ability and allowing for progression through the Awards if desired.
