The DWFRS Prince’s Trust programme goes digital

Date: 10th February, 2021

Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service (DWFRS) are now recruiting for the upcoming Prince’s Trust Achieve programme.  Working in partnership with The Prince’s Trust, this 8 week course will be delivered digitally for young people aged 16-25 who are not in education, employment or training.

Programme involves a mixture of group activity sessions via video calls to encourage the participants to get to know each other and build their confidence, as well as completing tasks set by staff for participants to complete independently.  Staff will support the young people to complete work that will lead to the Prince’s Trust Personal Development and Employability Skills Certificate.

Debbie Harvey, Course Leader explains “We are really excited about delivering the Achieve programme online as it’s the first fully digital course we have delivered.  With the current lockdown restrictions in place, we wanted to provide young people with the opportunity to use their time to meet new people, build confidence and gain skills employers are looking for.”

She added “Topics being delivered over the 8 weeks include Digital Skills, Preparing for a Healthy Lifestyle, Managing Money, Presentation Skills and Career Planning as well as receiving individual support to search and apply for employment opportunities.”

The course will run 5 days a week, starting on Monday 22nd February and finishing on Friday 16th April.  Spaces are limited so if you are interested in finding out more, get in touch with Debbie Harvey as soon as possible on 07500 066134 or email [email protected]
