Police Cadets

South Yorkshire Police currently run a cadet scheme, where young people aged 15-17 volunteer to help their local community, find out more about how the police work, and have the opportunity to work towards awards and qualifications. South Yorkshire Police Cadets have been involved in various aspects of policing, such as participating in test purchase operations.

If you are interested in becoming a Police Cadet, please visit our website here

Fire Cadets

The Fire Cadet scheme is for young people aged 13-18 years old and is designed to encourage growth in confidence, self-esteem, practical and theoretical skills.

The scheme is run at seven fire stations across South Yorkshire: Stocksbridge, Elm Lane, Birley Moor, Rotherham, Dearne, Edlington and Cudworth.

While a fire cadet, you are enrolled on to a BTEC in Teamwork and Personal skill (13-15 Level 1 & 16-18 Level 2). Although the scheme ends at 18 there are opportunities to continue as a Volunteer Instructor which will build on your leadership and management skills.
