Fire and Rescue course aims to increase employability of young

A FREE development course for unemployed young people to help give them practical skills and improve employability is open for applications.

South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue (SYFR) has teamed up with the Prince’s Trust to deliver The Team Programme, a 12-week personal development course.

It is specifically for unemployed 16 to 25-year-olds, and offers work experience, qualifications, practical skills, community projects and a residential week.

Individuals will gain new skills and qualifications, mix with new people and make new friends, get help with job-hunting and CV writing.

SYFR team programme leader John Daley said: “Our first Team Programme was a great success with ten youngsters graduating and a number of individuals securing a job afterwards.  

“We are now recruiting for our next course starting in May.  

“The course will include team building exercises, work placements, CV writing and loads more, which will give the youngsters a real sense of purpose and achievement.”
