WHAT IS THE VOLUNTEER PASSPORT?
It’s a short training course covering the key skills you need to have to work with young people.
There are 18 hours of teaching in six areas:
- Basic Youth Work
- Equality and Diversity
- First Aid
- Health and Safety
- Keeping yourself and others safe
- Person Centred Approach
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.

WHO CAN GET A VOLUNTEER PASSPORT?
The Volunteer Passport is for anyone over the age of 16 who volunteers with children or young people or who wants to volunteer in the future.
You could be an experienced volunteer who already gives several hours a week. Or you could be thinking about volunteering for the first time.
You don’t need any qualifications to train for a Volunteer Passport.
