AAA learners achieve their award

A great example of learning in the North Lanarkshire area comes from four learners who achieved their Adult Achievement Award at Level 3.  The learners met weekly as a group on a Friday afternoon over a period of around four months in a local library and were supported by Lead Scotland to achieve the Award.  The learners’ confidence, skills, knowledge and self-esteem increased and two of the learners have now gone onto Level 4.
The Adult Achievement Awards give you the opportunity to gain a National Certificate for learning you have undertaken, or are currently involved with, or would like to undertake in a variety of places such as work, at home or in a volunteer role.
The Awards are available at SCQF Levels: 2, 3, 4 and 6.  There are no entry requirements for the awards and they are free to undertake.
