The application form for Investment in Young People (IiYP) recognition has been designed for ease of use by employers. The following guidance notes provide examples of how each different activity may be scored when completing the form. Using these guidelines employers are required to assess their own details and activity against each question and allocate their own self assessment score. For each question employers will need to complete the text box to show evidence that in their view, justifies their self assessment score.
There are 9 separate questions that require a self assessment score (0 to 5) giving a maximum score of 45. To gain the Award employers need to score a minimum of 30 points, but do not need to score points in every one of the 9 areas. Employers may use any score between 0 and 5 that they feel best reflects their level of activity. The tenth and last question asks for details on any Quality Assurance Kite Marks your company holds, and whilst the answer may assist when your company is visited by one of our local assessors it will not directly affect your overall score and hence your pass/fail position.
In providing your answers please note that the following types of activity will not be accepted as evidence of activity for IiYP: staff taking on the position of School Governor or supporting reading/mathematic groups within the normal academic curriculum etc.
