Prince’s Trust Team Programme

The Prince’s Trust Team Programme is a 12 week personal development project aimed at offering work experience, nationally recognised qualifications, practical skills, rewarding community projects and an exciting residential week.


The Prince’s Trust Team Programme is a full time personal development and team building course. The course is designed to enable young people to develop their personal skills (such as confidence, leadership and problem solving) through a series of projects and challenges, with an emphasis on teamwork within the local community as well as a 4 day outward bound residential experience.

The course provides you with an opportunity to gain qualifications and experiences to enhance your CV. The aim of this course is to encourage all team members to look at their future plans and to assist them in preparing for entering into further education, training or employment. The course involves:

  • Four Day Residential - You will spend this week away - trying new things and learning how to work with others in activities such as canoeing, climbing, raft building and much more.
  • Community Project - As a team, you'll decide on a project to benefit your local community and work together to carry it our. This will give you a great experience of team work and provide you with skills which are highly regarded in job interviews.
  • Work Placement - You will have the opportunity to put the skills you have developed into practice in the workplace.
  • Team Challenge - You and the team will take on a challenge to help others in the local area. This will give you a chance to develop your new skills further in a practical situation.
