Event description

Description

Young Scot and the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) are running a workshop to look at how SQA could develop a Life Skills qualification in Scotland.

A Life Skills qualification could enable young people to demonstrate to employers, colleges and universities that they have essential skills for team work, communication, leadership, and other valuable attributes that aren't assessed through academic qualifications. Such a qualification would be especially useful for younger people as they do not always have work or volunteer experience which can be used as evidence of their skills.

Creating a Life Skills qualification that works for all, is simple to assess, and has a real impact with opportunity providers, is a challenge though. This is why we need your expertise and experience.

The workshop will take you through Young Scot's co-design process, giving you space to explore the issues, identify barriers, and use creative problem solving to develop a roadmap for how a Life Skills qualification could be delivered in Scotland.

The workshop is free to attend but we ask that you register so we can anticipate numbers.


FAQs

Who is this workshop for?

This workshop is open to all. It may be of particular interest for people who work in the education, skills or voluntary sectors, are parents or guardians of young people, or work for a business which is interested in recruiting young people.

This workshop is not aimed at young people per se, but if you fall within the 11-25 age range and have an interest in life skills from a professional perspective, then you would be most welcome to attend.

No, we will provide all the materials you will need as well as refreshments for the afternoon.
