Enrol now for the Prince’s Trust Team Programme

5 December 2014

Our Prince’s Trust Team Programme is once again looking for young adults between the ages of 16-25 who are currently unemployed in North East Lincs to join the new course in January 2015.

Enrol now for the Prince’s Trust Team Programme

Since 1992, a partnership between The Prince’s Trust and Humberside Fire and Rescue Service has re-engaged with thousands of unemployed 16-25 year olds, helping them to develop self-esteem and skills for work. Plans are now underway for the latest programme which starts in the New Year.

Team is a full-time 12 week personal development programme which aims to increase confidence, motivation and skills and, as a result, enables young people to move into employment, education, training, volunteering or an apprenticeship.

Some of the key features of the Team programme are:

- a challenging, structured 12-week programme for Teams of 12 to 15 young people

- team-building activities, including one week at a residential activity centre

- teamwork on real projects in the local community and individual work placements

- culminates in each Team presenting its achievements to an invited audience and receiving their end of programme certificates

- personal development takes place throughout by the process of planning, action and review

During the 12 week programme young people will:

- uncover hidden talents

- develop team-working and communication skills

- gain nationally recognised qualifications

During the programme young people will work towards the following qualifications and training:

- Prince’s Trust Level 2 Certificate In Employment, Teamwork and Community Skills (QCF)

- Food Safety Level 2

- Emergency First Aid

- Customer Service Level 2

- Equality & Diversity Training

- Fire Safety Awareness

- Road Safety Awareness

Team programme applicant criteria:

- aged 16-25 years of age

- currently unemployed

- currently not enrolled on any other full time programme

- willing to commit to a 12 week full time programme of activities
