Young People in Grantham are being encouraged to take the next step and sign up for a life changing and adventurous personal development course run by Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue.

Taking place in Grantham and other towns across the county, the free course will give young people aged 16 to 25 the opportunity to learn life skills, make new friends, gain work experience and get involved in a community project.

The course takes place in Grantham on September 28.

Kim Jones, Youth Engagement Manager at Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue, said: “Our Prince’s Trust team programme offers people aged 16 to 25 the chance to develop skills essential to success. Participants will go on a 12 week action-packed development journey designed to boost their confidence and motivation, help them uncover hidden talents and develop skills that are crucial to the world of work.

“Around 70 per cent of those who take part go on to make great achievements in work and education. And it’s great fun. Why not sign up and give it a go!”

Courses also take place at Lincoln and Gainsborough on September 21, and Boston on September 28.
