South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue and South Yorkshire Police with the Prince’s Trust are presently recruiting for their sixth Dearne Team Programme based at Dearne Community Fire Station, Wath-upon Dearne
The course is open to 16 – 25 year olds and is a life changing 12 week adventure.
Start date: Various start dates throughout the year. Contact John Daley for details
The Prince’s Trust Team programme is based in Dearne Fire Station, the young people will get involved in team building activities, a week-long residential trip away to the Peak District, a community project and two weeks of work experience during the course.
They will also get advice on employability, as well as gaining nationally recognised qualifications including:
Level 2 HABC Food Hygiene
Level 2 HABC First Aid at Work
IoSH Working Safely
Prince’s Trust Qualification in Employment, Teamwork and Community.
Add to this enrichment sessions on:
Drive for life
Nourishment and nutrition
We push the young people to believe that they can achieve anything, to show them that is just hard work and commitment that can see them succeed. The end of every programme is celebrated with a final presentation in the Town Hall that each programme is tied to. So presently we use Barnsley and Rotherham. The young people can then present themselves and show their family and friends the journey they have been on and how far they have come.
