Cornwall Fire & Rescue Prince’s Trust

Cornwall Fire & Rescue Service Team Programme is a 12 week personal development programme which aims to increase confidence, motivation and skills.  As a result enable young people to move into employment, education, training, volunteering or apprenticeships.

What’s in it for me?

  • Gain new skills and qualifications
  • Mix with new people and make new friends
  • It won’t cost you anything and you won’t lose your benefits
  • A better chance of moving into a job, education or training
  • Help with job-hunting and writing your CV
  • The chance to make a difference in your community
  • And most importantly– A big boost to your confidence and a real sense of achievement!

What happens on the course?

If you sign up for the Team programme, you’ll be joining a group of up to 14 young people for your 12 week programme. Amongst other things you will:

  • Take on community projects of your choosing
  • Take part in an exciting, action-packed residential week
  • Get two weeks’ work experience in a field you are interested in
  • Take part in an exciting team challenge

Is the Team programme for people like me?

If you are 16 – 25, yes! It’s free and will not affect your Jobseeker’s Allowance.

The Team programme is also available for employees who would like a chance to develop new interpersonal skills to improve long-term career prospects.

Sounds great when can I start?

We have started and recruited for Team 19 but we will be running more courses based at Truro Community Fire Station in the future.

Leading up to our team programmes, we run taster days to show and discuss information about the course. It’s a great opportunity for you to come along to ask questions and meet potential members of the team you will be joining!

We will update this page and our social media accounts with team and taster day dates as soon as we can.

If you are in receipt of any benefit we may be able to provide you with travel money if you are travelling to the course.
