Course Details

  • If you’re aged between 16-25, and you’re currently unemployed, join us at The Manchester College for this 12-week Prince’s Trust Team Programme. You’ll meet new friends, boost your confidence, and develop a host of essential skills that can help you get back into education or take the first step towards a rewarding career.

    The Prince’s Trust Team Programme is specifically designed to give you a helping hand and improve your prospects for the future. You’ll meet your class-mates and tutors during week one as you plan your goals and set targets for yourself, before preparing for a team building residential during week 2. On this week away from college, you’ll complete a number of outdoor activities including, rock climbing, caving, raft building, problem solving, a camping expedition, canoeing and high ropes.

    This residential will help you build the team work skills you’ll need to complete your own group project for your local community later on during the course, along with a final team challenge. The course is completely free and won’t affect your benefits, and you’ll also benefit from an individual work placement to help you start your journey to a successful career.

  • You’ll need to be aged between 16-25 and be currently unemployed. You don’t need to have any formal qualifications for the Prince’s Trust Team Programme, but you should be committed to attending each week.
