Then why not become a member of the team. Our unique Prince’s Trust programme will give you the skills, confidence and self-belief that you need to succeed in work, education or training. Our course will help to improve your personal development and practical skills through a focus on teamwork and teambuilding activities. You will get involved in community projects, work placements and fund-raising activities, at the same time as achieving some great qualifications. Say goodbye to boredom and hello to your future. You will work as part of a team of up to fifteen other young people for twelve weeks. During this time, you will take on a range of community projects, gain two weeks work experience and go on an action-packed residential week with your team.

We also welcome referrals from parents, careers and self-referral.

Assessment

You will work towards your own personal targets during the programme and all of your achievements will be recorded in a bespoke portfolio which will also act as evidence for your qualification. Your tutor will mark your work and meet with you to give you feedback. There will be no written examinations.

Future opportunities

Our course will help you develop the skills you need to progress into further education, training or employment. Other courses in the Inclusive Learning element of the college include the STEP and S.A.S programmes or one of the Futures Focus programmes.
