The Prince’s Trust Team programme is a 12 week personal development programme for young adults aged between 16 and 25, who are not in education, employment or training. The course leads to a nationally recognised certificate and includes modules that help show evidence of the new skills that have been built up during the course.
Throughout the 12-weeks, participants on the course will work together as a group, in a blend of online learning using Microsoft Office Teams, and face-to-face sessions. When the participants get together ‘in real life’ free mini-bus transportation is available within certain areas of Northumberland.
During the course, participants will work on a series of modules, including:
Planning for Personal Development
Supporting others in the Community
The teamwork module gives the group an opportunity to meet up and complete outdoor activities together, this can include canoeing, hiking and bouldering – all supported by fully qualified instructors.
For work experience module, the group have the opportunity to spend two weeks applying their new skills and confidence in a workplace setting. Support is available to secure placements.
During the community project module, working with different organisations who need help and support, the group come together to make a difference to a local community project. Previous projects have included re-decorating a local community centre, making and delivering promotional materials for a local charity and acting as ‘scares’ at a Halloween event!
