As part of our continuous review of the SCQF School Ambassador programme, we are investigating the possibility of a new ‘Ambassador’ award that schools could use to gain some formal recognition for young people involved as pupil ambassadors.
The proposed award would be flexible to allow pupils involved in any ambassador programme to take part, meaning that those involved in MyWOW, Young STEM leaders, or any other programmes could gain an SQA award too.
Our initial thoughts are that the award would be aimed at SCQF level 5 or 6 and be comprised of 1-2 units that are already credit rated and are part of existing other qualifications, meaning that no additional content is being developed. Content could be focused on aspects of leadership, influencing others, marketing, communication etc.
To progress with the idea, SQA would like to gauge interest within schools and we can go from there. We would really appreciate your feedback and ideas so we can collate them and carry on discussions with SQA.
The more schools that register an interest and offer feedback the better!
If you have any questions or would like to discuss any ideas, please contact Donnie Wood.
