New Online Prince's Trust programme for 16-18 year olds (start date 22nd June 2020)

Askham Bryan College's Prince's Trust will be going online with a new 8-week programme utilising Zoom chats for students to take part in daily online lessons on the 22nd June 2020.

The online learning supported by tutors from the programme works through five areas of development through the completion of workbooks, designed to help prepare young people to return to work, training or education.

These are:

Career planning - CV Building, mock interview support, support with applying for jobs and courses after the programme and finally building job search skills.

Planning for progression - Step by step support for self development and future Plans.

Teamwork - Building confidence and interpersonal skills by taking part in small challenges with fellow team members.

Supporting others - Develop an understanding of the support needs of other people as well as the limitations of the support they can give.

Presentation skills - To deliver a presentation to peers and further develop own skills.


A bursary is also available for students enrolled on the course subject to full attendance.

Prince's Trust Teams programme (currently suspended until further notice)

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.
