Getting Started

Please complete the Candidate Registration Form below when delivering the YAA and email wenna@youthcymru.org.uk.  We will then check the details against the Certificate Request Form at the end to measure the number of young people starting and finishing the awards.

Before starting the award, the young person will need to complete a short questionnaire. They will complete another questionnaire at the end of the process. We ask for these so we can measure the young person’s emotional social capabilities development.

This questionnaire also enables the young person to think about what they want to get from the YAA, how they might achieve that and helps to create a feedback loop between the young person and Awards Worker, to talk through progress  and  achievements. At the end of the award, all learnings are passed back to the Awards Worker so they can discuss the young person’s outcomes. Its aim is to support conversations around development and enable the young person to celebrate and acknowledge their success.

Moderation and verification of the UK Youth Achievement Awards

Once completed, the UK Youth Achievement Award, portfolios need to go through three stages of assessment and moderation:

Stage one – Awards Group Assessment and Recommendation – checking by the Awards Group and the Awards Group Worker

Stage two – Internal Moderation – checking  by  the organisation’s  own Agency Moderator

Stage three –  Verification – either checked in a Verification Meeting by representatives from other organisations,  overseen and endorsed by a representative from Youth Cymru, or through a postal submission direct to Youth Cymru.

All three stages must be successfully completed before certificates are awarded. Agency Moderators are requested to attend moderation meetings once a year to ensure high quality assurance, and meet the necessary requirements for ASDAN.

When awarding the certificates, we  will also give you the results from the pre and post questionnaires. These results will enable the Awards Group Worker to talk through developments, achievements and improvements with the young person.

Please contact wenna@youthcymru.org.uk if you require further information
