Key provisions

Work Experience/Study Programmes

Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue Service invites young people to take part in its 12-week Prince’s Trust Team Programme. The scheme is for eligible 16 to 25 year-olds and can also support those who may or have become marginalised within society through: social exclusion; involvement in crime or antisocial behaviour; have mild learning difficulties; or mental health issues and are not in employment, education or training.

Students are encouraged to undertake a voyage of self-discovery to boost and develop skills, experience, confidence and motivation, to find work or go on to further education or training. Our learners are encouraged and supported with the following:

  • a residential team-building week
  • community projects
  • interview and presentation skills
  • help with CV writing
  • help with gaining work experience, placements and references.
  • to gain a nationally recognised qualification

Training is free and doesn’t affect jobseekers’ allowance.

Our courses run three times a year from five locations: Watford; Hemel Hempstead; Cheshunt; Stevenage/North Herts; and Welwyn/Hatfield.

my daughter did this course back in January 2019, and it's not an exaggeration to say it saved her life. She had suffered for over two years with mental health problems, including self-harm & numerous suicide attempts. By attending this course, she regained her confidence and gave her something to live for. Now she is at college and has a part-time job and is looking forward to the future, and hopefully university. Thank you to all on the team - you'll never know what a difference you have made to our whole family.
