Hi Ruth

We had a little difficulty with the unit 'preparing to volunteer' when working with people who'd already volunteered

Glasgow Kelvin College developed its Community Achievement Awards framework (outline attached) in response to the challenge of supporting volunteers engaged in community activities and they're available to partners to deliver in liaison with us.  The Awards serve as an accredited support and supervision framework for volunteers at levels 5 and 6 (and at level 4 support development of participants lacking in confidence to volunteer).  While developed for adults, they can also be used to support young people aged 12+

Newbattle Abbey College's Adult Achievement Awards can also be used to accredit the learning which arises from volunteering
