The Phoenix Project is an incredible opportunity for both primary and secondary schools, colleges, alternative education agencies, and pupil referral units to refer young people to a five day interactive course where they will learn all about the Fire and Rescue Service, who we are, what we do and how we engage with the communities we serve.

Our aim is to address issues experienced by young people, ranging from low self-esteem and lack of confidence to anti-social behaviour and/or fire related problems.  It is an opportunity for children and young people to learn new skills, interact as part of a team and unearth previously under used or undiscovered talents against a Fire Service backdrop.

The Phoenix Project provides attendees with the opportunity to take part in a wide variety of activities such as working with real fire service equipment, using specially adapted fire engines, climbing ladders, and taking part in staged rescue scenarios.

The week climaxes with a ‘passing out’ parade where family, guardians, friends, teachers and referral agency staff can celebrate the young people’s success and provides a great photo opportunity to create memories you will want to keep.

We offer a number of delivery methods to cater for primary and secondary aged pupils all the way up to the age of 25 where a referring agency believe their attendees would benefit.

Where appropriate the project also offers an Agored qualification for everyone who completes.
