Are you volunteering? Want to gain a nationally recognised qualification that is done inyour own time with support from Xchange Scotland?
As part of Xchange Scotland’s summer programme, we are offering anybody connected to our summer projects the chance to be supported through the Community Achievement Award created by Kelvin College, it an award that recognises your achievement as a volunteer and allows you to gain 4 levels and a HNC in Community Achievement.
The Community Achievement Award is widely recognised by employers, universities and colleges around Scotland. The qualification is a form of recognition for your volunteering. It is great for volunteers who are hoping to achieve a qualification as part of their volunteer journey, great for the next steps in volunteer management, community work and a perfect stepping stone for building your confidence and meeting new people.
Chat with us first or attend an Info session at the Kinning Park Complex community meal, every Thursday evening 5-7pm. Or alternatively we can come to you by meeting for a coffee ,by skype or by phone. We speak with you about the time it will take to complete your award, what is involved and assess your current volunteering role to see what level you can start at.
Want to do it in Groups?
If you are doing it as a group or in pairs, then we can meet up with you all so you are all completing at the same time. You need to fill in an enrolment form and reflection log for every level; we go through this with you!
Commitment: As long as YOU need it get through the level your on!
We want to then celebrate with you!
We will invite you to our celebratory event in the Scottish Parliament in December 2016 to present you with your qualification and give you the chance to meet others who have been doing it too!
You should expect Xchange Scotland to keep in touch with you and support you in gaining as many levels of the qualification as you and we see fit. You should also expect us to keep in contact with you and send your qualification off to be assessed. You should also expect us to keep you motivated and to keep you volunteering in the local opportunities! All we need from you is motivation and to get excited about gaining a qualification for you’re volunteering!
