All young people involved in the programmes have the opportunity to gain accreditation for their work through a number of awards, including:
Both Dynamic Youth Awards and Youth Achievement Awards are recognised in the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework, and are accredited by ASDAN.
Young people involved in both programmes are given the opportunity for further development. Those who want to stay involved with the project beyond their S2 work can take up opportunities of speaking at conferences, developing new resources and running community based educational sessions.

Often within their own schools Peer Educators also use and further develop their skills by getting involved in school life through supporting P7 pupils in the transition to secondary school, taking on roles within pupils councils, health drop-ins and sports coaching. The skills and confidence they develop through taking part in the peer-led programmes are instilled into the young person’s life and value base and informs their future education and career choices.
