Hi5 Award at Home
The Hi5 Award is an exciting award for young people age 5+ that records and recognises wider achievement.
The Hi5 Award has been credit rated and levelled by the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) on the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF).
To gain a Hi5 Award, young people choose a challenge, complete a minimum of 5 hours of activity, think about and comment on their achievements and gather evidence of their participation.
They will receive a certificate showing their name, challenge and special achievements. The certificate will also show the SCQF level and credit points.
Youth Scotland’s Hi5 Award provides a simple framework to support quality work with young people. They offer recognition and accreditation for young peoples’ achievements and are easy to use and incorporate into existing or planned activities.
