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. Since starting the programme we have transformed over 200 young people’s lives. Also in this period we have undertaken 14 community projects, three of which recently won the coveted Prince’s Trust Community Impact Award for Yorkshire and Humberside.
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;
• Food Safety
• First Aid
• Working Safely
• Prince’s Trust Qualification in Employment, Teamwork and Community Skills.
We push 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. 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 and 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, www.princes-trust.org.uk/help-for-young-people/get-job/boost-your-confidence/your-team-journey As we are the emergency services, we will be delivering extra activities to make our programme one of a kind in the Yorkshire area. www.youtube.com/watch?v=14F5KnYobP0
