Where they can learn about the programme, tutors and what they will be getting up to.

The Prince’s Trust Team Programme is a free, 12 week course that is designed to improve the employability of 16 to 25 year olds who are out of work and education. The course is full time, Monday to Friday.

Whilst the programme is funded by Barnsley College, it is delivered by South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue, with the support of South Yorkshire Police.

During the course, the young people get involved in a wide range of activities, all of which are designed to build their confidence and develop their independence, whilst developing skills, and preparing them for a working life.

Below is a basic timetable of the 12 week course.

Week 1

The students get to know each other and begin their preparations for the residential experience the following week.

Week 2

We take the students to the Peak District for a four day residential trip. Here they undertake a number of outdoor activities aimed at developing their independence, confidence and teambuilding skills.

Week 3 to 6

The students identify and manage a practical community project together.

Weeks 7 to 8

The students spend the next two weeks gaining essential real time work experience with a company in their chosen sector.

Week 9

The students work on interview techniques, and create their CV.

Weeks 10 to 11

The students identify and manage the emotional support of a community group.

Week 12

Preparing for graduation.

On graduation, the student is awarded a number of qualifications including:

  • Food Hygiene
  • IOSH Working Safely
  • First Aid
  • Prince’s Trust Qualification in Employment, Teamwork and Community Skills

As our course is the only one in the country that is delivered by the fire service and the police, we are also able to offer extra, blue light based learning opportunities. Take a look at this video for a taste of what we are about.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XvSKmcRN_Qc
