Once you join the Team you are in for a treat. This 12-week programme is arranged through the Prince’s Trust, a recognised youth charity who work with people aged 16-25. You will experience things which will push you, yet give you a lot of enjoyment at the same time. You will run practical community projects, help people in the real world, have two weeks of work experience, work as a part of a brilliant team, get help with your future goals, go on an outdoor pursuits residential and make excellent friends along the way. This course will help you develop your confidence and employability skills, all whilst working towards a qualification at Entry Level 3, Level 1 or Level 2. To succeed you need to be ready to try everything out - are you up to the challenge?
Students will work towards a Prince's Trust Award or Certificate in Personal Development and Employability Skills which can be awarded at Entry Level 3, Level 1 or Level 2, depending on the portfolio of evidence team members put together throughout the programme.
Key units include:
You will build a portfolio of evidence which includes some written evidence, photographs, statements from other people and a variety of other methods - which then build into a folder portfolio across all of the units. You can handwrite or use IT - and we will help you to complete your evidence to the level you deserve. We can support with basic skills, but we also have students on Team with good previous qualifications including degrees. It all adds to the Team!
On completing the course you will have demonstrated key employability skills which are highly sought after in all career paths. The Team programme is a nationwide programme and recognised across the UK, so you may have an increased chance of gaining employment and the skills/confidence to enable this. After the programme you will be able to access up to a year of support from The Prince's Trust and college staff staff in finding opportunities.
What will I do on the programme?
