Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service recently held a presentation to celebrate the achievements of young people completing their Prince’s Trust Team programme.
Held at Hamworthy Community Fire Station on 12 April, the event enabled the young people to present to guests on what they had achieved over the 12 week programme and their hopes for the future.
The group were all awarded a Prince’s Trust Team completion certificate, presented by Deputy Lieutenant of Dorset Dr Sibyl King, and all also achieved the Employability, Teamwork and Community Skills Qualification awarded by the Prince’s Trust, as well as a First Aid certificate.
Debbie Wynn, the Service’s Prince’s Trust Team Leader, highlighted the achievements of the group since starting the programme in January: “Team 115 have worked hard to overcome the challenges set for them over the past 12 weeks. We are extremely proud of this group, who have developed their employability skills and completed various projects in the local community. It’s fantastic that two of the group are moving into employment already following the course, and one has been successful in his initial interview for the Army.”
During the presentation, one of the graduates, Dylan Cameron, said: “I can honestly say that signing up is the best thing I have ever done and, even though it has only been three months, I’m heartbroken that it’s come to an end.”
The Service has spaces available on the next Team programme, which will start on Monday 14 May. If you are aged 16 to 25, not in education, employment or training, and would like to gain skills and qualifications to help move you into work, please contact Debbie Wynn, Prince’s Trust Team Leader, on 07500 066134 or email [email protected]
