Recognising commitment and contribution

2Lt Cammy Green is the first (unless you know different) member of the Battalion to receive a certificate as part of the Saltire Awards.  This Award, supported by the Scottish Government, recognises the commitment and contribution of young people between the ages of 18 and 25 volunteering to work in their community.

saltire-awards-smallThe Awards are split in to four sections – The Challenge, The Approach, The Ascent and The Summit and achievement is recognised in the form of Saltire Award certificates and Young Scot reward points.

Saltire Awards are designed to encourage and enable youth volunteering and dovetail neatly into the four capacities of Curriculum for Excellence as participants will develop their abilities through volunteering to become successful learners, confident individuals, responsible citizens and effective contributors. The Saltire Journal is the resource provided to facilitate recording of skills and learning achieved, in addition the participants will be required to complete a self-evaluation (Footprints), which directly links their responses to Curriculum for Excellence.
