An action packed programme aimed at building young people's confidence and improving their chances of getting a job launches this month.

The Prince's Trust Team Programme is aimed at young people between the ages of 16 and 25 who may find themselves at a "loose end" before they start college or an apprenticeship.

It is also aimed at those who may be disillusioned with education and have lost direction in life.

At the end of the programme the young people gain a recognised college qualification

The scheme is based at Burnley and Nelson Fire Stations which means students will do fire drills, safety, first aid and a host of other learning sessions designed for those who enjoy participating. The course also includes a residential week in the Lakes involving exciting outdoor education.

The course is free for the students and the Burnley based one starts on Monday, May 22nd.
