ASDAN delighted to participate in Lord Mayor’s Show

ASDAN is delighted to be supporting the Lord Mayor’s Show on Saturday 12 November for the seventh year.

With over 7,000 participants, the three-mile long procession brings together charities, military bands and celebrities in honour of Dr Andrew Parmley, the 689th Lord Mayor of London.

ASDAN’s float this year involves 40 participants including young people from the National Volunteer Police Cadets, along with Irish dancers. In addition, ASDAN will be providing certificates of achievement for all those who volunteer for the show.

Jenny Williams, ASDAN Managing Director, said: “As a pioneering curriculum development organisation and awarding body, ASDAN works with thousands of schools, colleges and other training providers to offer programmes and qualifications that explicitly grow skills for learning, skills for employment and skills for life.

“Volunteering in the Lord Mayor’s Show is a great way for people to develop new skills. The event involves months of careful planning and preparation by participants, helping them gain valuable new experiences and opportunities for learning. ASDAN is delighted to be able to recognise the learning and achievement of volunteers in the Lord Mayor’s Show.”

ASDAN provides courses that recognise and accredit voluntary and community activities. Our Event Volunteering Qualifications are aimed at those aged over 14 who give their time freely for the benefit of their community. The aim of the qualifications is to help learners develop the skills and knowledge needed to make an effective contribution at an event.

Our Volunteering Short Course accredits 10-60 hours of activities and is aimed at people aged mainly 13-19. This flexible, multi-level programme is internally moderated and offers progression to other ASDAN courses.
