The Fire cadet course runs from September to July and results in a level 2 BTEC if the participants graduate. It is completely free including uniform and is for young people aged between 14-17 years old. They (applicants) need to be able to commit to Wednesday nights 6.00-9.00pm term time at Croydon Fire Station, Old Town, CR0 1AR and occasional weekend events. It is ideal for practical learners or those that need a self-confidence or self-esteem boost or those that just feel like they would like to try something different.

The applicants need to either live or attend school within the London Borough of Croydon.  It is a competitive process as there are only 16 places a year.  Download information from below.
