Tracey Burgoyne – Prince’s Trust Team Leader

05 Oct 2021

58-year-old Tracey Burgoyne is set to prepare the next generation for the world of work after completing a free course run by the college’s employability team to recruit new staff for the Prince’s Trust programme which aims to improve young people’s chances of moving into a job, further education or training. 

The pre-recruitment programme covered how to engage with young people and teach them important skills in communication, teamwork and timekeeping, as well as how to produce a CV and prepare for an interview.  

In an added boost, on completion of the training, participants were guaranteed a job interview with the Prince’s Trust team leading to Tracey being offered a job with the team. 

Tracey, a former photography lecturer, said: “After moving back to the area I was looking for a new role and signed up for the course to enable me to revive my old skills, gain the confidence that I had lost and get me back to normality after the pandemic. 

“It was a really rewarding course – the tutors were extremely supportive and motivated me to continue.  I learnt how to be more proactive with young people and, on completion of the course was offered a job as a team leader on the Prince’s Trust programme.”
