Adviza is pleased to announce that the latest Prince’s Trust Team programmes will launch on Monday 10th May in Aylesbury, Bracknell and Reading (the latter in association with London Irish).

This potentially life-changing initiative is a 12-week personal development programme for people aged 16-24 who are not in education, employment or training. It includes community and team work, workplace skills coaching and exposure to new career options. It helps participants develop new skills, gain a qualification and meet new people.

Re-engaging young people in a safe setting

While recent Team programmes have been adapted for strict lockdown conditions, the May sessions will adopt a blended delivery format, likely to mix face-to-face and virtual work. The emphasis will be on re-engaging young people with work in a safe and secure setting as the UK emerges from lockdown.

Lee Teideman, who manages the Team project for Adviza, says, “the Team programme can be a springboard to new opportunities in work and training, which is badly needed right now. After a year of the pandemic, many young people have become more isolated, with poorer mental health and lower confidence from job rejections. Team can help turn that around.

"I hope we give some young people the confidence and motivation to seize opportunities in time for the new academic year in September, and for the re-emergence of hospitality, retail and other sectors affected by the pandemic.”
