Fired up with a host of new skills

Learners from a London school know how to use ladders, hoses and breathing apparatus after a week’s fire training course at London Fire Brigade’s Tottenham fire station.

Octagon Alternative Provision Academy students marked the end of their training with a full uniform parade.

Mason Mustafa, Narimane Rebhaoui and Eren Kocager were presented with training certificates by Peter Wolfenden, Haringey borough commander of the brigade. Mason also received the Jack Petchey Foundation Award for outstanding trainee, voted for by his fellow course students.

Angela Tempany, head of school at Octagon, said: “Our learners have embraced the opportunity to improve their skills and can be very proud of their achievements. We are incredibly grateful to the officers in the London Fire Brigade for inspiring confidence in our learners and transferring their valuable skills.”
