We’ve been delivering our Prince’s Trust team programme for the last 20 years with some great success stories. The free 12-week course is available for 16-25-year-olds who are unemployed and not in education or training. The course offers young people the chance to build confidence through a residential week away, team challenges, work experience placement, and community project. It also gives them a chance to break down personal barriers and overcome obstacles, so they become better prepared for the world of work.
