SOUTH YORKSHIRE FIRE AND RESCUE, WITH SOUTH YORKSHIRE POLICE AND THE PRINCE’S TRUST ARE RECRUITING IN SHEFFIELD!

5 Sep

SOUTH YORKSHIRE FIRE AND RESCUE, WITH SOUTH YORKSHIRE POLICE AND THE PRINCE’S TRUST ARE RECRUITING IN SHEFFIELD!

DO YOU HAVE A YOUNG PERSON BETWEEN 16 – 25 WHO WOULD BENEFIT FROM OUR AWARD WINNING PROGRAMME?

We are presently recruiting for our first Sheffield Team Programme. We will be holding open mornings on

7 September from 10am

11 September from 10am

13 September from 10am

Please take time to read through our offer below.

South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue and South Yorkshire Police have teamed up with the Prince’s Trust and Barnsley College to deliver our award winning 12 week TEAM programme. The course is open to 16 – 25 year olds and is a life changing 12 week adventure.

So far we have delivered four programmes from Barnsley and three from the Dearne. In that time we have transformed over 75 young people’s lives. Also in this period we have undertaken seven community projects one of which recently won the coveted Prince’s Trust Community impact award for Yorkshire and Humberside for our project in Goldthorpe which was the catalyst for the new ‘embankment project.’

The Prince’s Trust Team programme is based in Dearne Fire Station  and Barnsley (Broadway) and in September from our Sheffield (Elm Lane) 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
  • John Muir Discovery Award
  • Prince’s Trust Qualification in Employment, Teamwork and Community.

Add to this enrichment sessions on

  • Dementia awareness
  • Drug awareness
  • Internet security
  • Drive for life
  • Nourishment and nutrition
  • Sexual health

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.

Our programme is without doubt leading the way for its content and delivery and we hope to be able to offer this throughout the South Yorkshire region within the next 12 months. Offering these fantastic opportunities to many more young people in our region for many years to come.

Here is a link to the Prince’s Trust website which outlines each week on the programme – https://www.princes-trust.org.uk/help-for-young-people/get-job/boost-your-confidence/your-team-journey

But as we are the emergency services, we will be delivering extra activities to make our programme one of a kind in the Yorkshire area. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XvSKmcRN_Qc
