Wings is committed to offering training and accreditation to our young people, volunteers and staff. We are an Approved Centre for the AQA Unit Award Scheme and for ASDAN Volunteering and Personal and Social Development (PSD) awards.

This means that we can offer accreditation at various levels for our volunteers and those working on our courses.

Cafe Volunteers:

There is a range of awards offering progression from AQA units in for example Cooking and Serving a Meal or Life Skills eg Anger Management, through to the ASDAN Certificate in Community Volunteering at Levels 1, 2 or 3.


Young People on each course gain an AQA unit, and those on courses such as Trax may gain three or more awards relating to their activities.

Young people on the Horizons course for NEETs work towards a well reconised ASDAN PSD award.


In addition, our volunteers are offered courses in First Aid and Food Hygiene, and undertake in house training in Child Protection, Leading Workshops, Health and Safety and other areas.

We encourage our established Volunteers to register with Petroc to acquire an NVQ in Youth Support Work.
