Recruiting for Trowbridge Fire Cadets programme


Date: 12th July, 2021

Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service is looking for young people to join their Fire Cadets programme at Trowbridge fire station, which will start in September.

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

The Service is looking to recruit young people between the ages of 13 and 18 to take part in this rewarding training scheme, which will not only be fun and enjoyable but will also give the Cadets the chance to learn new personal and social skills, work towards accredited certificates, learn about the functions and responsibilities of the Fire and Rescue Service, and take part in social action projects in their local community.

The programme, linked to the National Fire Cadet model, is delivered by firefighters and volunteers, and lasts for 38 weeks within the academic year of 2021/2022. Weekly sessions will take place every Wednesday evening, from 6pm to 8.30pm at Trowbridge fire station and will involve a mix of practical and classroom-based theory elements alongside community-based social action projects.

Neil Chamberlain, Youth Intervention Coordinator, said: “We welcome applications from anyone aged 13-18 who is keen to learn about the Fire and Rescue Service and wants to develop their personal skills. This will be a great opportunity to take on new challenges, meet new people and gain skills that the Cadets can use in all aspects of life.”

The course is designed to be fun, but it also challenges and develops the participants by getting them to:

Due to the expected high level of interest, there will be an application and interview process. Completed application forms must be submitted by Monday 26 July so, if you are interested in getting involved, please register your interest via email to [email protected] and an application form will be sent to you.
