Prince's Trust team programme



11th March 2021

Norfolk Fire & Rescue Service is recruiting for Team Programme all year for teams in January, May and September.

Team is a free 12-week personal development course for 16 to 25-year-olds who are not in employment, education or training. It does not affect any benefits, so you can still receive any allowances that you receive. All travel costs are reimbursed.

The course includes a team building residential week, participation in a community project and a two-week work placement, with many of the young people securing employment or volunteer opportunities from the placement. In fact, 3 out of 4 young people who complete our course go on to employment, training or education at the end of the programme.

We are also currently Covid-19 Secure, adhering to the government guidelines set out by the Department of Education and also our own protocols as a Fire Service.

Over 12 weeks the course helps young people develop and improve skills in key areas such as:

  • Communication
  • Confidence
  • Working with others
  • Setting and achieving goals
  • Job search skills
  • Leadership

The course is accredited and you will leave with a Prince’s Trust Certificate in Employment, Teamwork and Community Skills, as well as Emergency First Aid at work (HSE Approved). We also have strong links with many agencies and professionals around the county, who visit during the course to share their knowledge, skills and time with the young people, ensuring that the support they receive is right for each individual.

We have three delivery points around the county delivering TEAM Programme;

  • Norwich
  • Dereham 
  • King's Lynn

Our start dates are January, May and September.
