South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue is teaming up with Barnsley College and the Prince’s Trust to deliver a 12-week personal development course for unemployed 16 to 25 year olds, which aims to develop new skills and improve confidence and motivation.

The Prince’s Trust Team programme, starting on Monday 18 January, will be based in Barnsley and will help to tackle youth unemployment in the area. The course will give unemployed 16 to 25 year olds the skills and confidence to find a job.

Young people will get involved in team building activities, a week-long residential trip, a community project and two weeks of work experience during the course. They will also get advice on how to write CVs as well as gaining nationally recognised qualifications.

Three in four young people supported by The Prince’s Trust move into work, education or training. The Prince’s Trust will help 59,000 disadvantaged young people this year, giving them the confidence and skills to turn their lives around

A taster day for any young person who might be interested takes place on Friday 8 January, 10.00am to 2.00pm at Barnsley (Broadway) Fire Station Community Room, S70 6RA. Contact Rhian Oxley at South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue on Tel:07919 565122 or email: roxley@syfire.gov.uk for more information.
