Fire Cadets – Dorset

The aim of Fire Cadets is to support the development of young people by providing a positive role model and giving them opportunities to participate in a wide range of activities.

In Dorset, the programme is delivered to 14-16 year olds, specifically chosen from three different groups – those who have successfully completed SPARC and continue to perform positively; those who have been referred by teachers who feel they would benefit (e.g. lacking confidence, communication skills or secure home backgrounds); and those who would purely like to be part of the scheme.

The programme is delivered by specially trained and CRB/DBS checked staff and volunteers, and it lasts for 20 weeks, taking place on one evening a week at a fire station.

Benefits to the participants and schools:

The BTEC award is assessed throughout the programme by trained A1 instructors. The qualification is internally verified and the awarding body sends an external verifier once a year to review working practice.

The scheme is evaluated by students, instructors, referral partners and parents or carers. Following each scheme, the feedback is reviewed and any necessary amendments made to the programme.
