Opportunity to sign up to Walsall Prince’s Trust programme
8th February 2018
Young people in Walsall are being urged to take on new challenges and sign up to a special programme.
The 12-week Prince’s Trust programme, run by City of Wolverhampton College in partnership with West Midlands Police, contains everything from team-building exercises to community based projects – where team members work to raise funds and improve the local area for community members.
The programme helps 16 to 25-year-olds learn practical and employable skills, increase personal confidence and gain skills to help progress onto employment, apprenticeships or higher education opportunities.
Those who take part will gain a Prince’s Trust qualification in employment, teamwork and community skills, plus food hygiene and first aid certificates.
PCSO Sarah Bourne said: “The programme is primarily aimed at teenagers who are perhaps lacking direction, maybe have dropped out of education, and would benefit from the team-building and fundraising aspects of the course.
“In many cases it has led to participants securing training and employment. There are also practical elements like CV writing that we teach on the programme.”
The next course in Walsall will commence on Monday February 26.
To find out more about the programme, and to get a taster of what it would be like before signing up, there is an open day taking place at Walsall Community Fire Station, Blue Lane West, Walsall on Thursday February 15 from 1-3pm.
