Prince’s Trust now recruiting for January programmes

Leaders of the South Yorkshire Prince’s Trust scheme want you to join the exciting programme, which starts again in the New Year.  
 
South Yorkshire Police and South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue have teamed up with the Prince’s Trust and Barnsley College to deliver an award winning 12-week programme for 16-25-year-olds. 
 
So far the programme, which is delivered throughout Barnsley, Sheffield and Rotherham, has changed the lives of over 100 young people, giving them access to valuable work experience and the opportunity to work on unique community projects.  
 
John Daley, from South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue, who runs the programme, said: “Throughout the programme we push young people to believe that they can achieve anything, to show them that it’s with hard work and commitment that they can succeed. 
 
“Our programme is without doubt leading the way for its content and delivery and we are excited to be offering these fantastic opportunities to young people in our region once again and hope to do be doing so for many years to come.” 
 
The programme is based in the Dearne and Barnsley Fire Station’s and over 12 weeks, young people get involved in a variety of team building exercises and a week-long residential trip to the Peak District, among other exciting work experience opportunities. 
 
John said: “Those enrolled on the course also get advice on employability, as well as nationally recognised qualifications in a range of areas including first aid and food hygiene. 
 
“Add to this a range of enrichment sessions from internet security to nourishment and nutrition and you’ve got a thorough and in-depth but fun course gaining both valuable work and life skills.
 
“It really is a fantastic programme which I’d encourage any youngster to sign up for.”
 
The Dearne course starts on Monday 22 January while the Barnsley course will start the following week on Monday 29 January.
