Programme Aims To Get Notts Young People Into Work

11th January 2018
News

Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service (NFRS) has begun recruiting for the Prince’s Trust Team Programme.

The 12-week scheme aims to support people between the ages of 16 – 25 into employment, education or training by the end of the programme.

As well as gaining qualifications in Manual Handling, First Aid and Food Hygiene certificates, candidates also attend a four-day outdoors residential camp where they can have a go at activities such as rock climbing, caving and canoeing.

There is also a focus on getting ready for the world of work, whether that be attending mock interviews and undertaking work experience or practicing writing CVs and application forms.

Gavin Clark, the North Nottinghamshire Team Leader for the Prince’s Trust, said: “I was unemployed for three years before joining a Prince’s Trust course because I was lacking in confidence and qualifications.

“Doing the course not only allowed me to learn, work and feel part of something, but I tried so many new things and gained new skills that I finished the course with three job offers and two other courses to go on to – I enjoyed the experience so much that I now deliver the course to others.”

Aaron Hutchinson joined a Prince’s Trust course in 2017 to overcome his social anxiety.

He said: “I can honestly say that the Prince’s Trust course made a huge difference in my life. I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life but thanks to The Prince’s Trust, I’ve started to get back out there and join in with society.

“I have now joined a CSCS course to go into construction and I’m excited for my future.”

There are two upcoming days where you can sign up to join the Princes Trust.

The first is at Highfields Fire Station, Hassocks Lane, Beeston on January 11 from 10am to 3pm.

 

The next is at Prince's Trust House, Stockhill Fire Station, Stockhill Lane, Basford on 17th January from 10am to 3pm.
