ASDAN is an education charity and awarding organisation. We work with thousands of schools, colleges and other training providers, both in the UK and internationally, to offer programmes and qualifications that help young people develop skills for learning, work and life.

ASDAN and the Lord Mayor’s Show are pleased to be working together for the eighth consecutive year to offer volunteers a certificate recognising and celebrating their contribution to this historic event. 

The partnership between ASDAN and the Lord Mayor's Show has proved a huge success over the last seven years and I am pleased that people who volunteer their time to the show are being recognised and certificated for their efforts

ASDAN is proud to be partnering the National Volunteer Police Cadets in this year’s show.

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.
Jenny Williams, ASDAN Chief Executive
