Prince’s Trust Achieve programme:
The Prince’s Trust Achieve programme is developed and managed by The Prince’s Trust, a national youth charity that supports young people aged 11 to 30, to achieve their potential.
The Trust’s Achieve programme
s gives young people the practical support needed to help develop self-esteem and skills for their future. 72% of young people who participated in an Achieve club last year felt that the programme had increased their education or training opportunities. 94% of the young people who completed the Achieve programme in 2015-2016 were in education, employment or training three months after the programme ended.
The Achieve programme is for young people who are facing challenges in education, supporting them to learn new skills, develop confidence and re-engage with learning so they can reach their full potential.
The programme is delivered by staff within our school that have been trained by The Prince’s Trust.
While on the programme, young people will have the opportunity to take part in a wide variety of activities related to Personal and Social Development, Life Skills, Active Citizenship, Enterprise and Preparation for Work.
Students are able to:
· Make their own choices about what they learn
· Take responsibility for setting and achieving their own goals
· Build confidence
· Get the skills needed to achieve their future goals
· Gain a qualification in Personal Development and Employability Skills
The Prince’s Trust Qualification in Personal Development and Employability Skills can be achieved at Entry Level 3, Level 1 or Level 2 and at three different sizes (Award, Certificate or Diploma).
Since collaborating with the trust in 2014, the students that have been selected to be a part of the Prince’s Trust have participated in a wide range of activities such as supporting homeless people in Manchester, volunteering in care homes, volunteering and raising money for Ronald McDonald House, and attending college taster days.
