Young people from Wednesfield are planning a brighter future after completing an intensive 12 week programme at City of Wolverhampton College.

The eight students, who have all completed the Prince’s Trust’s self development programme, were presented with their certificates by Mayor of Wolverhampton Councillor Barry Findlay at a celebratory event at Eastfield Community Centre on April 5.

As part of the 12 week programme, the youngsters took part in an action-packed residential week, rock climbing and orienteering at Walcot Hall in Shropshire. They also transformed the computer room at Skills for Life – an educational facility for individuals with disabilities – as part of a two-week community project.

Participants also benefitted from two weeks’ work experience with a local employer as well as help with job searches, producing a CV and interview skills.

Team Leader Nicola Cooke said: “The team have been exceptional and should be delighted with what they have accomplished during the programme.

The next Prince’s Trust programme started at Wednesfield Police Station on Monday April 22. For more information contact Nicola Cooke on 07966 447402 or email

The Prince’s Trust Team programme gives unemployed young people aged 16 to 25 the chance to learn new skills and improve their confidence and self-esteem through a range of outdoor activities, community work and work experience.
