How does it help?

More than 70% of unemployed participants go on to jobs, training or education within three months of completing.

Through building your confidence and motivation, you are encouraged to think about your futures; this includes preparing a post-programme development plan.

During the 12 weeks, you will:

  • Uncover hidden talents
  • Assume some responsibility for tasks
  • Develop team-working and communication skills
  • Gain awareness of your local community and how you can contribute to it
  • Gain nationally recognised qualifications

Who is Eligible?

Those aged 16 – 25:

  • Especially if you are part of The Trust’s other target groups, which are: people leaving care, young offenders, educational underachievers and the long-term unemployed.

How does it work?

You will join a team of up to 15 participants. A team typically comprises around 12 unemployed people and one or two employed people sponsored by their employers.

During the 12-week programme, you will:

  • Spend a week away at a residential activity centre
  • Undertake a project based in their local community
  • Complete a work placement
  • Participate in a team challenge involving caring for others
  • Stage a team presentation, during which they recount their experiences

What do you gain?

A massive boost in skills and confidence. A recent survey showed:

  • 90% felt they could work more effectively with others in a team
  • 84% reported they would be more willing to take responsibility for projects in the future

When is the next programme running?
