Young get fired up for skills

Have your say

UNEMPLOYED young people are being urged to sign up for a 12-week course to learn new skills with Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service.

To join the Prince’s Trust programme, participants must be aged between 16 and 25, out of work, and living in the Sunderland area.

The course gives up to 15 young people the opportunity to meet other people, try out new skills, get a taste of the workplace and plan for the future – all in a specially designed course, which starts on May 6.

An open day will be held at Farringdon Community Fire Station on Thursday, April 24, from 10am until 4pm, where people will be on hand to give advice.

The course includes a team-building residential session, a community fund-raising project, a work placement, CV writing skills and 
interview technique, and a team challenge in the community.

To find out more about the course or the open day, call the Princes Trust Team on 444 1175 or text FIRE to 07584 006915.
