Prince’s Trust Team Programme
A quick overview of the 12 weeks Prince’s Trust programme;
Day One: Meeting New People
It can be hard meeting new people, but everyone will be in the same situation. During the day you will get the opportunity to take part in a variety of activities in an informal environment. By the end of day one you really will feel part of things, and will have met new friends.
Week One: Take Action
During this week you will get the chance to set your own targets, or what you want to achieve with the support of your Team Leader. You will plan and prepare for your team building residential in week two, and be reminded of all the exciting activities and qualifications you will be able to achieve over the 12 weeks.
Week Two: Residential Week
In week two you will spend a week away in a completely new environment. You will be able to challenge yourself and raise your confidence. You will learn new ways to communicate and lead a team, as well as have great fun at the same time. After this week you will be working as part of a strong, bonded team, where you will be able to achieve greater things. You could do rock climbing, raft building and problem solving tasks.
Week Three-Six: The Community Project
During this part of the course you will get the chance to choose your own project that will make a real difference to your community. This will give you something different to talk about in an interview, and allow you stand out from the crowd. You will be able to explain how you can plan, fundraise and work as a real team player.
Weeks seven-eight: Work Placements
During these two weeks you can gain experience in a real work environment. This will be a choice that is yours, and you will be supported by your Team Leader all of the way. This will allow you to try new things, and give you some really useful skills and experiences to put onto your CV.
Week nine: Next Steps
You will spend a full week planning your options for the future. You will get the opportunity to construct an up-to-date CV, learn how to complete application forms, take part in interview workshops, and learn how body language is so important. You should have a clear direction of what you want to do next by the end of the week.
Weeks 10-11: Team Challenge
You will spend 2 weeks to plan, prepare and take part in team challenges. This will allow you to realise your team skills, and be involved in some exciting activities, where you can make a real difference to your community. How about organising a trip for a youth group to a football match at Aston Villa? Or taking a group of disadvantaged children to a theme park? The choice is yours!
Week 12: Have Your Say
In your final week, you’ll deliver a presentation to your friends and family as well as potential employers, and Prince’s Trust staff. This will be your chance to show off the skills you’ve gained over the last 12 weeks, and explain what you’ve been up to and what you plan to do in the future.
