Are you aged 16-25, unemployed and live in the Black Country?
Joining a Prince’s Trust Team programme can give you a better chance of moving into a job or further education and training.
The 12-week programme will give you the chance to improve your confidence and self-esteem, make new friends and learn new skills through a range of outdoor activities, community activities and work experience.
During the programme you will take part in an action-packed residential week – getting involved in team building activities such as rock climbing, raft building and abseiling – as well as fundraising activities and carrying out voluntary work in the community.
You will also benefit from two weeks’ work experience with a local employer and help with job searches, producing a CV and interview skills.
At the end of the programme you will receive the nationally recognised Prince’s Trust Certificate in Employment, Teamwork and Community Skills and during the scheme you will gain a range of new skills that are useful in the workplace, such as basic emergency First Aid and Food Hygiene.
All the equipment you need will be provided and you will also get help with travel expenses. It doesn’t affect your entitlement to benefits either – if you are claiming Job Seeker’s Allowance you can continue to sign on although you must notify the Jobcentre that you are on the programme.
The Team programme was launched by The Prince’s Trust in 1990 and has since helped more than 153,000 unemployed young people turn their lives around, with three out of four young people supported by the Trust moving into work, education or training.
City of Wolverhampton College has been delivering the Prince’s Trust Team programme courses across the Black Country and Shropshire since September 2000 and to date over 2000 young people have attended schemes in Wolverhampton, Dudley, Walsall, Sandwell, Telford and Shrewsbury.
Programmes start at regular intervals in all locations throughout the year. For more details contact The Prince’s Trust office at the college on 01902 837133.
