South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue, with South Yorkshire Police, The Prince’s Trust and Barnsley College are still recruiting for the next TEAM Programme, which get underway in mid-January.
The partners are looking for referrals of 16-25-year-olds who would benefit from the award-winning programme. The Parkway team will begin on the 20 January 2020 with open days on 13–16 January either morning or afternoon.
South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue and South Yorkshire Police have teamed up with the Prince’s Trust and Barnsley College to deliver our award winning 12 week TEAM programme. The course is open to 16 – 25 year olds and is a life changing 12 week adventure.
So far 19 programmes have been delivered across Barnsley, Dearne and Sheffield, with 200 young people benefiting as a result.
There have also been 21 community projects, four of which won the coveted Prince’s Trust Community impact award for Yorkshire and Humberside.
TEAM has had two Young Ambassadors for the region, one recently winning Regional Ambassador of the year and shortlisted for a Pride of Britain Award. Three Rising Stars young people have gone on to full time employment after a difficult start.
The Prince’s Trust Team programme is based in Dearne Fire Station, Barnsley (Broadway) and Sheffield (Parkway) Fire Station. The young people will get involved in team building activities, a week-long residential trip away to the Peak District, a community project and two weeks of work experience during the course. They will also get advice on employability, as well as gaining nationally recognised qualifications including;
- Level 2 HABC Food Hygiene
- Level 2 HABC First Aid at Work
- Level 2 HABC Working Safely
- Prince’s Trust Qualification in Employment, Teamwork and Community.
Add to this enrichment sessions on

The end of every programme is celebrated with a final presentation in the Town Hall that each programme is tied to. The young people can then present themselves and show their family and friends the journey they have been on and how far they have come.
