Aligns with the Scottish Fire & Rescue Service Strategic Aims 1 and 3
Aim 1: Improved safety of our communities and staff
Aim 3: Improved outcomes through partnership.

The purpose of the programme is to provide training and development for young people principally through Fire & Rescue related activities. It will seek to develop their core skills as described in the Scottish Executive document “A Curriculum for Excellence”.

"Young people have an ongoing entitlement to develop their skills for learning, skills for life and skills for work in the setting that is best suited to their needs and aspirations.

For some young people, this will mean staying in school for S5 and S6; for others it w ill mean further or higher education, work-based learning, volunteering, or learning in a community or third sector setting"

It will also seek to promote a more positive image of young people in the wider community.
