The programme is practical-based, which suits me perfectly. It's fun and active, and there aren't very many exams. The tutors are really good and it's the best way to complete a two-year Fire Cadets training course through the College. My plan is to improve my fitness to get into the Fire Service and then become a qualified Fireman.

The tutors here are like family; they help me when I need it and are really kind. That’s the reason I progressed to Level 3, because Level 2 was fun and helped me a lot. I’d also met new people and made some good friends. The tutors encouraged me to apply as a volunteer for the Fire Service. I go out into the community and give safety advice. It’s helped me to learn how to communicate with people from different backgrounds and what you get back in return is just amazing. One of the tutors even recommended me for some volunteering work in Hungary, helping people in poverty and I’ve gained a lot of experience from this too. The programme has also helped me to get a placement in the Police; the physical lessons helped to keep my stamina up so it really helped with the bleep test. I’m really looking forward to the future!
