Youth Engagement

We also run a number of programmes, including a cadet scheme, designed to help young people reach their full potential.

Our programmes offer a blend of classroom learning and drill-yard activity, which means they are engaging and practical courses that also promote the importance of skills like working as a team, communication, understanding and assessing risk, adhering to instructions and understanding consequences of actions.

It’s fun, it’s hard work, and at the end young people can achieve recognised qualifications that could lead to jobs with the Fire Service or other organisations.
