Hugh Baird College


We are the only college in Merseyside to have collaborated with CitizenCard to offer you a FREE official identification card, which would otherwise cost you £15!

What is a CitizenCard?


  • A CitizenCard is an official UK ID/proof of age card recognised as such by the Home Office and almost all UK retailers and public transport providers including UK airlines.
  • All CitizenCards display one of the following age-bands relevant to your age at the time we send your card: 18+, 16-17 or 12-15.
  • The adult 18+ CitizenCard displays POLICE, SECURITY INDUSTRY and TRADING STANDARDS logos and all CitizenCards bear the PASS hologram.
  • All cardholders get access to hundreds of national and local discounts.
