Wider Achievement

Across Dumfries and Galloway, young people are encouraged and supported to take part in a wide range of opportunities.

From Education Scotland website:

Gaining recognition for their achievements and the skills for learning, skills for life and skills for work that are developed through them, benefits all young people. It can increase their confidence, raise their aspirations, improve their motivation for learning and keep them engaged in education.

In addition, the process of planning, recording and recognising achievements can help young people to reflect on their learning and development, valuable for being able to express themselves in applications or interviews with employers, colleges or universities.
