COMMUNITY ACHIEVEMENT AWARD
Coach My Sport (CiC) are looking to work with Glasgow Kelvin College to deliver Community Achievement Awards. Volunteers will have the opportunity to work towards achieving a Community Achievement Award and will be supported to reflect on the learning and development which arises from involvement, delivery and development of community activities.
The Community Achievement Award is a Scottish Community Qualification Framework accredited course which is designed to support, recognise and accredit learning and achievement in a community setting. The award is based around a three stage process:
1. Planning – choosing an activity and setting milestones.
2. Implementing – carrying out activity as outlined in the planning stage.
3. Evaluating – reviewing success, identifying learning and looking at the benefits to the self and others.
Participants are able to work to achieve awards at different levels:
SCQF Lev 4: Involvement in Community Activity (40 Hours)
SCQF Lev 5: Assisting in the delivery of Community Activities (40 Hours)
SCQF Lev 6: Delivery of Community Activities (60 Hours)
SCQF Lev 7: Development of Community Activities (80 Hours)
These awards give individuals the chance to engage with learning and education in an informal environment whilst working towards achieving a formal and recognisable qualification.
Additionally, participants become a registered student with Glasgow Kelvin College and can get a student card and access campus facilities.
We aim to offer these awards to the wider community and individuals engaged in volunteering at other local organisations can be awarded for their community work. All participants receive support to complete the associated paperwork and evidence requirements.
The awards will also be completed with appropriate support from trained mentors. These mentors are from the sports community across the Forth Valley.
