Young people can make a fresh start, thanks to a new 12-week personal development course starting on May 4 at the Enfield Centre.
The Prince’s Trust Team Programme is a full-time course which improves confidence, motivation and self-esteem, while also developing skills and uncovering hidden talents.
Team members will gain a nationally recognised qualification and increase their employability.
Seventy per cent of unemployed participants who have taken part have gone on to a job, education or training within three months of finishing.
Team members plan, fundraise and later carry out projects that will benefit the local community.
Halfway through the course, there is an opportunity for work placements and members also receive advice on writing CVs and interview techniques.
Tulay Rashid, Assistant Director Young People’s College, said the course is not classroom based learning – instead the team develops and implements practical solutions to real life situations.
“It also encourages self-assessment and enables members to create their own development plans,” she said.
“Team members can gain a Level 1 City and Guilds Certificate and Key Skills Units in Improving Own Learning and Performance, Working with Others and Problem Solving.
The Prince’s Trust Team Programme focuses on those who particularly need help including educational underachievers, offenders and ex-offenders, the unemployed and young people in or leaving care.
“It brings together a diverse mix of young people and is aimed at 16 to 25 year olds,” she said.
Each year the programme helps over 8,000 young people across the UK.
It is estimated each team contributes more than £7,000 to the local community through the valuable work they do.
