Each session is led by experienced and fully qualified tutors. When you have finished training you will gain a nationally accredited qualification from the NCFE and a Volunteer Passport photo ID badge.
The training, your Volunteer Passport ID badge and certificate are free of charge. You can wear the badge when you are volunteering to show that you have undertaken the Volunteer Passport accredited training course.
