EXMOUTH Community College has linked up with the police and fire authority to offer students a chance to gain an insight into life working for the emergency services.

The 11-week pilot initiative, which started last week, involves between 15 and 30 students who applied to become a cadet.

The youngsters will be given a uniform and receive four to five sessions with both the police and fire services.

Activities will include drills using breathing apparatus, working with the road policing unit and police investigation.
