Prince’s Trust

Helping change young lives, the Prince's Trust scheme is a 12-week personal development programme which aims to increase confidence, motivation and skills and as a result enable young people to move into employment, education, training, volunteering or apprenticeships.

Askham Bryan College, in partnership with The Prince’s Trust, are working together to help tackle youth unemployment in North and West Yorkshire. The College’s Prince’s Trust programmes offer young people the opportunity to develop their personal skills and experience working as part of a team through challenges and projects within their local community, whilst gaining nationally recognised qualifications.

Did you know?

Three in four young people on Prince’s Trust schemes move into work, education or training. The Prince’s Trust will help 55,000 disadvantaged young people this year, helping them obtain the confidence and skills to turn their lives around by giving unemployed 16 to 25-year-olds the skills and confidence to find a job or training opportunity.

Team Programme

The action-packed programme runs for 12 weeks, including a four-day residential, and aims to build up confidence, giving you the support and motivation to progress onto further education or employment. Young people will get involved in team building activities, a four-day three-night residential trip, a community project and two weeks of work experience during the course. They will also get advice on how to write CVs as well as gaining nationally recognised qualifications.

The Team programme is free and you can claim existing benefits if eligible. Bus fares will also be reimbursed upon the receipt of valid bus tickets.
