What happens at a Fire Cadets session?
You will have the opportunity to develop transferable and practical skills that will help you with future training and employment.
What do we do?
- Try out firefighting equipment and run drills – yep, you'll get to have a go with ladders and hoses!
- Life skills – to equip you in the future.
- Team building activities.
- Get active – we learn about why it's important to keep fit and healthy.
When you reach 17 years old there may be an opportunity for you to become a young leader of the cadets.
Around one in five young people in the UK are not in work, education or training. Youth unemployment costs the UK economy millions a day in lost productivity. Our programme can help a young person gain qualifications whilst learning valuable life skills. Can you help us change a young person’s life?
Do you know any young people (age 13–17) who are:
- Looking for support academically or socially?
- Undecided or unsure of their future?
- Practically or vocationally inclined?
- Interested in the fire service?
