Welcome to Greater Manchester’s Education web pages. We have developed these pages to promote the safety messages we believe are important to all residents of Greater Manchester, regardless of age.
On this site you will find an overview of the key safety messages in relation to fire, road, water and also safety messages for those who live in rural areas of Greater Manchester. We hope this information is useful in equipping our communities with the knowledge they need to stay safe whether at home, work or on holiday.
Opportunities for young people
We also run a number of programmes, including a cadet scheme, designed to help young people reach their full potential.
Our programmes offer a blend of classroom learning and drill-yard activity, which means they are engaging and practical courses that also promote the importance of skills like working as a team, communication, understanding and assessing risk, adhering to instructions and understanding consequences of actions.
It’s fun, it’s hard work, and at the end young people can achieve recognised qualifications that could lead to jobs with the Fire Service or other organisations.
