Employability programmes work a little differently from other courses, especially when it comes to eligibility. For example, someone from Glasgow wouldn't be eligible for a programme taking place in North Ayrshire, and vice versa. Check the Postcode Eligibility tab in the Things to Know section to make sure this programme is open to you.

Volunteering for young people

The Saltire Awards is a national initiative for young people aged 12 to 25.

The Awards recognise you and your volunteering. Help and support will be on hand every step along the way and the easy to use website allows you to record and track your activities, hours and achievements.

You can progress through the sections in turn or enter and exit at any stage.

Saltire certificates are awarded for the amount of volunteering you do. These are endorsed by the Scottish Government and signed by a Scottish Government Minister.

You get Young Scot Reward Points with the certificates you achieve – these entitle you to some fantastic prizes.
Capturing your volunteering experiences and journey on the Saltire website is a great way to keep a record for your CV, so you don’t need to worry about forgetting anything you’ve done and achieved.
