Young people are on the pathway to success after completing a nine-week course with Cleveland Fire Brigade designed to get them back into education, employment or training.

Firefighting, first aid, raft building and canoeing activities were included in the first of several courses to be rolled out across our area over the next two years with up to 200 young people expected to take part.

The first course on the Tees Valley Pathways Inspire Project started in May and and has led to 10 participants gaining a BTEC qualification in Fire and Rescue Services in the Community.

The course has already proved a success with some of the participants being offered jobs and further education places. 


During a passing out ceremony at the Brigade’s Learning and Development Centre in Grangetown, the young people got a chance to show off their recently acquired skills to friends and family as well as Brigade management.
