The Hills Group sponsors fire service’s cadet programme for third year
The cadet courses are well underway for the 2021/22 cohort, the new intake of young people aged between 13 and 18 started in September. They’ve been taking part in practical activities, mirroring those undertaken by firefighters, help to develop confidence and self-esteem, as well as teamwork, communication and problem-solving.
Ian Hopkins, prevention delivery manager, said: “We are extremely grateful for the support The Hills Group have previously provided for the benefit of young people in Swindon and Wiltshire, and we are delighted they have pledged further funding for the 2021/2022 fire cadet program.
“Now we have returned to delivering our cadet courses after a one-year absence due to the pandemic, this sponsorship will help us provide positive activity to young people at a time when they are likely to need it most. The support from Hills is invaluable, as it covers the costs of the uniform, equipment and resources required to run the weekly sessions.”
The aim of the fire cadet programme 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. Upon completing the course they will obtain Level 2 BTEC qualification, the National Fire Cadet Level 1 Award and an AQA Award.
