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. Team participant

The Prince's Trust Team initiative is a 12-week personal development programme to help unemployed young people build confidence, meet new people, acquire new skills and gain a qualification.

Adviza runs the programme three times a year. Check back for future start dates.

Who the Team programme is for

16 to 24-year-olds in Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire who are not in education, employment or training.

What's involved

The programme runs Monday to Friday for 12 weeks and includes community projects, work placement and team building activities. As part of the course, we also spend some time developing your interview and CV skills to help you take the next step.

Why join Team?

Three out of four people on Team go on to work or college within three months

Here are some of the benefits of joining the Team programme:

  • Boosts your confidence and skills
  • Enables you to gain a nationally-recognised qualification
  • It’s completely free and won’t affect your benefits
  • You’ll get support with travel expenses.
Before I joined the course I was really insecure and always worrying what other people thought of me, now I’m much more confident and able to just be me. Team participant
