Prince's Trust Team Programme

Prince's Trust Team programme at Greater Brighton Metropolitan College

Are you ready for 12 weeks that could change your life? Aged between 16 and 25 and looking for new opportunities or fresh challenges to help you progress in your life?

Prince’s Trust Programme – Broadwater, Central Brighton and East Brighton

A 12 week programme for students aged 16-25 - Not in Education, Employment or Training (NEETs)

If you feel that you need to develop confidence, motivation, communication and employability skills, then joining the Prince’s Trust Team programme could be perfect for you. It’s a FREE, intensive 12-week personal development course for 16–25 year olds, offering exciting challenges and the chance to uncover
your hidden talents. If you’re in receipt of Jobseeker’s allowance, you can still claim your benefits during the course.

  • Build your confidence and motivation
  • Gain work experience
  • Achieve a nationally-recognised qualification
  • Make a real difference in your community

The Prince’s Trust is the country’s leading youth charity which helps young people in the UK who are not in work, education or training. On the programme, you’ll work as part of a small team based at one of our three sites across the Greater Brighton region.

Our friendly and supportive Team Leaders will guide you through each phase of the programme as you develop new skills. The programme includes an action-packed residential, a work placement, challenging community-based projects of your team’s choosing and an end-of-team presentation to celebrate your achievements.

Each team consists of around 15 young people from various backgrounds and abilities. Each individual will have their own agenda about what they want to get from the experience and you will all work together in a friendly and supportive 'team' environment to help you to achieve your goals.

Throughout the programme, you will have the chance to focus on job search activities and work towards recognised qualifications in Employment, Teamwork & Community Skills, First Aid and Food Hygiene. The Prince's Trust Team programme will look great on your CV and within three months of completing the programme, 3 out of 4 of our young people are in training, education or employment.

The programme offers the chance to make new friends, take on a potentially life-changing challenge and make a difference in the local community. In the past, some students have even been offered paid work as a result of their work placement. Free travel may be provided, based on eligibility.
