Wider Achievement in the BGE

With this page, we hope to share resources, ideas and practice on the delivery of wider achievement awards in the Broad General Education. A focus on wider achievement  awards through the BGE will:

  • help children to build and articulate their skills from a young age
  • build the skills for learning, life and work
  • develop children’s confidence and sense of achievement outwith the academic
  • improve children’s understanding of the importance of wider learning
  • support young people to access vocational pathways in high school and beyond (Developing the Young Workforce)
  • support staff to track and profile wider learning and skills development
  • support young people in their pursuit of next steps (applications, interviews, personal statements etc)
  • extend the opportunity for achievement and skills development of children and young people who are most at risk of underachieving (equity)
  • provide more opportunities to involve families in the language of awards
  • give more opportunities for families to engage in the learning of children and young people in a softer way

If you already have your own wider achievement story to tell, please complete a storyboard using one of the formats provided:
