Young people urged to join prestigious youth development programme
3rd Jan 2020
Adviza is encouraging any young person currently unemployed or out of education to boost their confidence with ‘Team’, a successful youth development programme starting in January 2020.
Team is The Prince’s Trust’s 12-week personal development programme where young people aged 16 - 25 can meet new people, learn new skills, improve confidence and boost their job or education prospects. The programme is run three times a year by Adviza in Reading, in partnership with London Irish, Aylesburby and Slough.
The Team programme gives young people the opportunity to take on their own group community project, making a positive difference to Reading and Slough, and also includes an action packed residential trip. In addition, participants complete two weeks’ work experience in something that interests them.
As part of the course, the young people will also spend some time developing their interview and CV writing skills to ensure their confidence is sky-high for when taking the next step with work or education. What’s more, the programme is free and will not affect a young person’s ability to claim Jobseeker’s Allowance.
Three out of four young people on Team go on to work or college within three months of completing the programme.
Lee Teideman, Head of Projects with Adviza said:
“We are really pleased to be offering The Prince’s Trust Team programme in Berkshire and Buckinghamshire and would like to reach out to any young person who finds themselves out of work and education to come along and see what Team is all about. This really could be a life-changing opportunity, a chance to meet new people and improve your skills and qualifications, opening up doors for a better and brighter future.”
A previous Team participant said:
"The Prince’s Trust Team programme, and the experiences it gave me, was a really important first step for me in building the confidence and communication skills to find employment. I wouldn’t be in the position I am without it.”
The next programme begins on Monday 20th January 2020, running until Friday 10th April 2020, and interested participants can sign up now by contacting:
